    intermittent fasting Only On Cardio Days


    Being off for the summer I wanted to try a little intermittent fasting since I train earlier in the day. However, I am not a big fan of weightlifting on an empty stomach & the lower energy I feel. However, I have been doing IF on my cardio days only. Right now I only have one cardio day per week but as my bodybuilding show gets closer I plan on adding 1-2 more. Will I still get some of the benefits of IF doing it in this manner? The only bad thing is that I am a teacher & go back to work in September so morning workouts will stop & training will be at 4pm.

    Thanks

    you could always try it... its not too hard to tell if u like it or not. as far as noticible results from it once a week will be debatable at best

    Go for it. Take some Target A-2 prior to the runs

    Could you explain that a bit? I've never heard of that approach. Thanks

    So basically for a day or two a week you do a 24 hour fast and eat normally on the other days.

    Try the Renegade diet. Really worked for me.

    It's more of an eating plan than a 'diet'.

    Yeah. Only think that worked for me. Easy to follow. Takes discipline but results will come fast if you're smashing the heavy iron.
