I actually can't think of a faster way to burn muscle than running for 45 mins on an empty stomach.
Definately not recommended for someone trying to build muscle and grow.
But not a bad idea for someone with a sky high bodyfat trying to lose the spare tire.

well, that is true...that kind of cardio should not be recommended on an empty stomach. I guess I always just assume that when people are talking about "running" for 45 mins. they mean a steady jog at low to moderate intensity.

cortisol levels are highest in the morning after 8-12 fast, so your body will burn a higher percentage of muscle to fat than desired

As long as you keep the intensity low to moderate, your will burn fat as the primary fuel in the AM on an empty stomach.
Yes, cortisol is high in the morning, but so also are GH and testosterone which will protect muscle as long as you dont go ass wild with the cardio.

So basically if I do a fast walk or light jog in the a.m, I'm good to go for burning fat instead of muscle, right? Cool, thanks to everyone who replied, appreciate it!

i normally do cardio around 2-3 but im gonna start doing it earlier, but at least eat light or drink a protein shake before you head out to the bike or the mill.
