Study: “Fasted cardio does not result in higher fat oxidation rates vs pre-workout protein consumption”
People always get angry at me when I suggest to NOT train fasted, as really there are no benefits for fat loss and it can even be counterproductive towards muscle gain.
I’ve suggested for years to our clients having the Ketogains Pre-Workout Coffee as a great way to “break your fast” and then train afterwards.
Some whey protein (25-30g), coffee, MCT or coconut oil, creatine, a pinch of himalayan salt, and in some cases a bit of glucose make for an awesome and energizing pre-workout that will give you both energy and the protein needed to build and recover.
