    I always train in a fasted state. I don't have any problems at all. Once I get moving I'm good. However, let's say I did a 24 hour fast the day before, ate at 7PM, and am training at 7:30 the next morning, I've noticed I start running out of gas around 30 minutes into it. It happened yesterday as a matter of fact. I had done 20 minutes of Dips and Pullups EDT style and was doing 15 minutes of goblet squats and one hand swings. Around set 2 I started running out of gas. I finished, but noticed a lower energy.

    Agreed! I fast (or undereat, e.g. consume high quality whey protein, maybe a handful of almonds, every few hours) during the day, train (haven't really experienced any weak feelings here, so long as I "undereat"), and then consume the majority of my food each evening. Strength has gone up, body fat down. Pleased with the results, and I feel great! Mentally alert, focused, no midday fatigue. And my blood work just came back -- better than last year! Doubled HDL, blood pressure down, excellent health overall.

    Embrace the fast!

    If I do it regularly I am fine.

    If I have not done it for a while, I can feel pretty shaky. It all depends on the nutrition quality in the previous days.

    this sounds like a weird and kinda disgusting question to ask, but have you guys experienced any problems like diarrhea or constipation after eating a huge meal after fasting? Sorry for the disgustingness lol

    I just finished training at the ass end of a 48 hour fast. I feel like a demon. I usually only fast for 36 hours every weekend, Saturday from 6 PM to 6 AM Monday. But today sort of spur of the moment I decided to organize the shed out back and then I had the bright idea to just keep fasting because I am far more productive in a fasted state than a fed one. All I do is drink water like a beast the whole fast, I do take two scoops of BCAAs right before I train though but thats it. So theres my two cents.

    Fasted training is horrible for me. Avoiding it as much as possible, thank you very much.

    Feels like I have more energy when training fasted.
    If we talk morning training then I HAVE to train in fasted state, or else I am not working correctly. (Not having eaten breakfast regularly for about 12 or so years)
    Mid day I prefer fasted-training as well. (since I break the fast at 11 or 12 usually)
    Afternoon I don't mind either. I usually "under eat" during the day. I do not fast more than once or twice a week (as in 20 hrs long fast).

    Most important meal of the day is the one after training (according to me, but I am just random guy on the internetz).

    I enjoy fasted training. I fast 20 hours and eat during four on my non training days but onthe days I train, I train in the mornings and about thirty min afterwards I have 3 scoops of Whey and sixty minutes after that I have another 3 scoops.

    A bit jealous of you people who work well on fasted training. I'm quite the opposite.

    eg. I'm doing Burn Extreme at the moment... a suggestion is to actually do fasted training on the "eating days." Tried it.. performed horrible. What does work excellent for me though is on feeding days eating maybe 6000kcal various greasy and sugary foods before the workout and then hitting the bells and downing the rest of the days kcal afterwards. Performance for me in a definitely not fasted state is by far superior.
