An interesting new study on fasted training.
Fasted state training burns fat, spares glycogen, new study shows.
Old news, new study.

Fasted low intensity training. This was light cardio at 50% max. Maybe a slow jog or brisk walk.

SUPER KEY POINT, sir!
I can't see how glycogen is "spared" under high-intensity or anaerobic training. The body is unable to process fats at least during the actual anaerobic movements...Perhaps throughout the rest of the morning I could imagine accelerated fat burning.
I do see that if you train cardio in the morning, yes, you optimize fat burning as there is very little glycogen laying around to be used up for energy. This is very effective, IMO.
I personally like cardio in the AM fasted state and heavy lifting in the evening after I have carbed up 300+g for optimum performance in the gym.

Also, WRT to glycogen after an overnight fast..you'll have less LIVER glycogen, not muscle glycogen (unless you are carbohydrate restricted and depleted the day before). Muscle glycogen is never released, and only tapped into under conditions of higher intensity work or reduced blood glucose.
I think as a basic rule
LISS morning fasted cardio is fine.
HIIT morning fasted cardio is a mistake.

Some BCAA's might help, as plasma proteins (specifically albumin) are catabolized to obtain them to convert to glucose...as a consequence, tryptophan is released into the blood stream, and we all know what tryptophan does...circa Thanksgiviing.

Re: Fasted Training
Does there exist ANY evidence that would suggest fasted AM weight training to be detrimental to gains (strength or weight)? Last I checked all the researched only suggested that fasted didn't really equal more fat loss but there was nothing to say it significently effected body composition or performance. Especially if you take into account no one here is really talking true fasted as most will have a decent amount of ff-aa prior and/or intra workout.
For me fasted morning weight training is just more convienent. I lift before work and do t have much time to get a meal in and let it digest and working out with food in my stomach generally makes me feel like sh1t which in turn effects my intensitiy and general motivation during my session.
That said, I am going to be experimenting with some Greek yogurt, EVCO and a apple or berries prior to working out to see if I notice any difference.

i performed semi fasted training (aminos, pwo's) and was at my best physique and strength was at its highest, it was for roughly 4 months and i prefer it that way over non fasted.

I think from a mental standpoint you will adapt to training under conditions of fast. I'll have to look and see if there is anything WRT to performance fasted vs. fed. If not, it would make for a pretty cool, easy study to conduct.

Fasted training works aight for me for any muscle group but legs. Legs I must have tons of carbs hours before training. However, I dont recommend fasted training unless you can also make time for a nice, well-rounded post workout meal afterwards. Otherwise supplemental BCAA's better be ur best friend until u do eat something.

i have been doing my sunday workouts after not eating for 14 hours. ill eat by 8pm at night and the workout is at 10am. ill go for a minimum of 2 hours and sometimes up to 4 hours as its usually my strongman training day with a group of guys.
i have not noticed a loss in performance and im on my 3rd month of doing this. not sure so much about gains yet. still too quick to tell as some things have improved whiles others have not and im recovering from a knee injury. so to me [somewhat] fasted AM training is not hurting me. i will see by april at my next planned powerlifting meet if all this has been worth it.
you can call me "ozzie" for short.

In for this as I train faded most of the time(BCAA/preworkout though).

I'll concede the panel, we could likely collaborate and between the two of us get 2x as many subjects from two schools, and then you could really crank out some good publishable work.
