Little to none is traditional. HIIT training or swimming would likely be the way to go, but be wary of burning a lot of calories (unless you're eating tons) since that will definitely slow down your gains.
Also, if your work-out regimen places a lot of stress on joints with heavy weights and compound movements, swimming would be my pick. Just, y'know, as a side-note.http://hughesfitness.com

Well i actually have been eating alot of Crap in the last 3 months, so ive put on quite a bit of fat (bad fat), but last week ive started a healthy eating program, with a good amounut of food and only good sources. Do you think maybe if i just did some light Cardio over the next month or so just to get rid of some of the ugly looking fat??

do all you want. Just replace the calories. Too many guys abstain from cardio while bulking and can't even climb a flight of stairs without getting out of breath.
Bulking is a poor excuse for not doing cardio which is too bad.Yes I'm 63 and natural but with a Test number of almost 800.
At it for 43 years. No end in sight

I agree that SOME cardio while bulking is a great idea. Because you are adding calories and thus putting a strain on your body by adding weight, compensating by strengthening your heart is a great idea. The best way to strengthen your heart is with HIIT cardio, as doing some low intensity cardio really wont do much for you (other than burn calories, which is not your objective when bulking)

Let's face it: we all hate cardio. I have never met a single person who actually likes it. Based on this, we give ourselves what we want to hear: that it's unnecessary. That it won't help us. That, worst case scenario, it will delay our progress.
This is completely broscience. Honestly, just eat enough and you'll be fine. Obviously you don't want to do an hour of plyometrics every day, but just taking a swim at moderate intensity a few times a week will do you a lot of good.

If you think you cant get big while doing cardio just take a look at the NFL, those guys are huge and believe me they run.
