Fasted High Intensity Resistance Training
Hey everyone. I'm new to this forum, but definitely not new to low carb/paleo and exercise. I've been doing research for a while. A few books later, blogs, videos later and I am now following a basic slow burn program. I personally prefer to stay in ketosis because I feel like it gives me an edge with endurance in the sport I perform in (boxing).
So under those circumstances, I have been working out in the morning on an empty stomach with the assumption that my body would mostly be running off of body fat instead, both dietary and body fat.
Now of course I drink water, a cup of black coffee, creatine monohydrate and maybe some salt (sodium) to make sure I'm on par there.
I have completed every exercise until failure and have continued to show extreme gains weekly, in both fat loss and strength gains.
Post workout meal is a ton of protein and fat IMMEDIATELY after my workout.
I usually season and prepare two, 1 pound steaks to cook right after. They are thick, fatty cuts.
With this, I'm just trying to put two things together. I have no direct evidence at the moment to back up the conjunction of the two, but I have heard about it before and I personally don't see how it would be a problem.
I'm totally interested in seeing what everyone here has to say about it. I have a lot of respect for opinions from this website.
