    Phuck No, don't do that on an empty tank. That totally relies on carbohydrate metabolism, which is very low after fasting overnight. Meaning there is an extremely high possibility of tapping into your amino acid pool (AKA: muscle).

    Look at the thread title. I think he means high intensity interval training. If so, I wouldn't do it on an empty stomach.

    HIIT on an empty stomach is suicide. Low intenstiy, constant rate cardio is fine without food.

    Empty stomach sure.. but i think it would depend more on when glycogen stores are at their lowest.. usually in the morning/after you wake up.

    take some glutamine before you start. this will help to aid in muscle sparing.

    good luck.

    wow!.. this is not in the loung and im doing what i can to help....lol.

    Oh well im drunk


    back to the lounge.
