    Whey promotes insulin - just so you know. Unless you're very lean, you may not need to worry about the pre-cardio whey. I highly recommend caffeine, however.
    Wondering where to start? Confused? "Homework 1" will get you started.

    Think you're ready for the "next step"? Take this test.

    soooo.built instead of this guy doing whey and putting fuel in his body you are suggesting to do just caffeine??
    Im confused ast his conflicts with what the video you posted said can you clarify ?
    MY thoughts are this and you can tell me if you agree.......
    one is that everyone is diff
    my BEST advice of when to do EITHER weights or cardio (anything) is to follow your body rhythms and go when you have the most energy to give it your all
    intesity overrules all
    and my second thought thought is that yes there may be small benefits for weight loss to doing it fasted IF you have the type of body that can handle the morn properly AND still put out the same amount of energy ..........
    bottom line if you can and want to shed fat do it and if you find you lag in gusto don't
    simple

    Didn't watch the vid but depends on type of cardio, steady state or high intensity. High intensity- fuel yourself or your body will and it wont be all fat, steady state go ahead on empty but keep it easy- nice light jog at most.

    Does it really matter what time of day you do the cardio? As long as calories in are less than calories out over the course of the day, you lose weight. I've dropped 30 pounds in the last three months following that basic principle. (My workouts/cardio take place around 4-5 PM).

    From what the dude said seems to me there is absolutely no benifit from doing fasted cardio none zero only harm from it being catabolic. That was my take on it.

    This.

    The amount of difference it actually makes is negligible at best (when you do the math) either for losing fat or muscle. You are better to follow an appropriate nutrition regime and not focus on what time you do what.
    Today I can do what others will not so that tomorrow I will do what others cannot.

    The difference between winners and losers is that winners do things that losers don't want to do.

    i've done fasted and fed.
    Only thing i do fasted now is mobility w/o's,running drills(350 or so cals)
    All my other morning training(heavy bag,running)is fed with protein and fruit
    Losing fat still and feeling alot better.
    Doesn't matter how you do it what matters is your diet.
    If you feel you need to do fasted cardio then try it but it sounds like you might want to work on your diet.

    Oh but you would be surprised to know how much alike everyone is! We are all WAAAAAY More alike when it comes to metabolic function then we are un-alike. This is just some cop out that floats around the industry which allows people to sell you something. period. "we all different, this is why you can't use blah blah's system. Instead try the universal acai noni p90 insanity core toner...."

    Eat when you want to eat. It's overrated. Do it when it makes you feel good. When its' comfortable for you and your workouts. Fat loss comes from days on days of metabolic functions. I lost 11 lbs in one day. 13 lbs in two days. Had a friend lose 25 lbs i one day. Does anyone think it was all or even marginal fat?

    Last time I didn't see my wife for two weeks I lost almost a pound in about 42 seconds.
    Today I can do what others will not so that tomorrow I will do what others cannot.

    The difference between winners and losers is that winners do things that losers don't want to do.
