if you’re fat adapted and already exercising…doooo it!
another spontaneous fast in the name of experimentation…last week i did HIIT while fasted and it was good so i figured i’d try with resistance training…
was a cranky butt this morning…didn’t even want to go to the gym…had errands so might as well go…grrrr
ran a couple of pre gym errands
started my weight training around 17 hours fasted
squats, bent over rows, shoulders, bis, tris and then i was so hyper i went and did a walk/run mile on the treadmill.
the only reason i left the gym was because i had more errands (walmart/costco) and i was brain bored.
no dizziness, no bonk, no muscle fatigue, no vomit…none of the things that “they” say will happen from fasted resistance (or cardio) training.
apparently the junk in my trunk is the best pre workout ever
ate at 20 hours fasted
@MKChitown - tagging you since i know you’re fasting today and a gym goer
how’s the fast going?
EDIT: if you’re fasting and start feeling overly hungry and want to keep going…exercise.
i know it sounds counterintuitive but i was really hungry and grumpy before i walked into the gym. did my workout and was able to complete my errands and take care of things at home before eating with no issues…
