    Depends on your goals and how intense your lifting is.

    Weight loss: good

    Maximum strength/muscle gains: bad

    What does it matter for muscle gains as long as you break your fast after your workout and have lots of protein? A high intensity workout while IFing promotes the release of human growth hormone, which helps muscle building.

    you risk burning your own muscle while lifting heavy weights. again, I said for -maximum- gains.

    It's certainly not BAD for you. It depends on what your goals are. Hence, I vote indifferent.

    Lifted today whil IF of 13 hours...... Strength suffers a bit for me, but otherwise, It certainly has not stalled any progress.....

    Fair enough. I was under the impression that when the body catabolizes its lean tissue for energy, it first goes after damaged muscle fibers (damage through everyday use) that it would have had to repair anyway.

    Good for fat loss, meh for muscle gain. You won't get shredded consistently working out while fasting.
    Remember, you are unique just like everybody else.

    I believe even Martin from leangains advises on not training completely fasted. He always takes some BCAA's prior to lifting. BCAA's prevent muscle breakdown.
