    Absolutely - wouldnt set foot in the gym without my breakfast - eating properly is the most important thing you can do isnt it?

    In doesnt matter what rep range you use. Workin out without eating enough food is 110% worthless when trying to gain size.

    sometimes shit happens.

    you don't have enough time or whatever the reason, just go workout like you normally would.

    in the grand scheme of things (all things equal) its not going to be even noticable.

    your workout might be unpleasant but thats about it.

    If you have hypoglycemic tendencies then it most definantly would not be a good idea.

    I was actually wondering the same thing. Is it really catastrophic if you can eat b4 training?

    Its not ideal or well, but as long as its few and far between, would the workout, in fact, be worthless?

    make sure it doesnt happen everyday, you will probably have a shitty workout, I would go with lighter weights, why would you let this happen anyway? If you can't get food, at least drink some milk or some juice

    thnx guys for your answers but i was asking about the rep range because there was an old thread that talked about the best rep range when you are cutting and glycogen depleted , and the answer was that when glycogen depleted your low Rms like 3-5 Rm won't be effected as your high Rms 10+..

    If you have low glucose levels in your blood and/or don't store it well. Ideally, you want to eat to have a full stock pf glycogen stored in your liver during exercise. So if you have trouble with low glucose and don't eat in the morning, your liver levels would be pretty low and you gotta be careful. The liver can componsate to create glycogen as well, but I am just throwing that out there, you more than very likely wouldn't have to worry about it.

    bah I can't get my facts straight. P-funk once said in the past that lower reps can be ideal for cutting because it higher intensity lifts will help maintain muscle mass.
