    Question Poll: Fasted workouts???

    Primal Fuel
    Hi MDAers!

    I haven't been doing my workouts fasted (my schedule doesn't allow me to do a structured workout routine...I just go to the gym when I happen to have a free hour) and I'm wondering if I should at least do fasted sprints.

    Do YOU do fasted weightlifting and/or sprints? If so, what are the results of your fasted workouts as opposed to non-fasted ones?

    I can't tell a huge difference fasted vs fed. There was an article on T Nation about it this week; it's a pain to link it on my phone.

    I just eat on the mornings I wake up hungry and don't on the mornings I'm not. I don't force it.

    define fasted. like 1 hour since food. 4 hours since food. 8 hours since food, etc.

    personally, I hate pretty much all exercise done more than an hour or 2 after I've eaten. if i'm playing sports or doing sprints, I need some sort of food 30-60 minutes to perform at my best. plain and simple. if i'm lifting, I can eat about an hour or 2 beforehand. and I can't lift weights in the morning no matter what. I never have the strength that I have in the afternoon or evening.

    Fasted = I suppose 8 hours (arbitrary) or more after eating.

    My morning cardio is "fasted" or 10 hours after food, but I usually eat some diet gelatin in the morning and a lunch of low fat cheese and raw vegetables before weight training in the afternoon. Then plenty of food post weight training...

    This.

    I hate workout out fasted, but don't like eating too soon before training. The ideal window is 3-6 hours beforehand for me. 2 is fine.

    I prefer to work out fasted.

    For the last two weeks, I've done 6 of 7 days with my 10 minutes of kettle bells and 1.5 hrs hot vinyasa yoga at the studio, plus 30 minutes of walking in the cold (bundled up, of course). And then I eat.

    I do foam rolling in the evening before bed.
