Should I Do Cardio Exercise On An Empty Stomach ?
I received a question today from one of my Inner Circle members, Steve. He asked about the rational–whether he should be doing cardio on an empty stomach in the AM or not?
Here’s Steve’s Question:
there a way to ask Shawn a brief question?
Thanks for all your help and Happy New
My answer in audio follows:
The short version for text answer is…
Yes! I still believe it to be an advantage for fat-burning. It’s admittedly over-hyped, like most similar advantages but it does help burn a greater percentage of calories from fat.
I think Tom Venuto has done a masterful job of supporting my argument here.
The one thing, as you’ll hear in the audio FAQ, I suggest (and practice) eating something before a morning strength workout and going into cardio on “E”mpty.
Without the 150-200 calorie snack before a Strength workout you’ll lose strength and intensity and your workout will suffer too much.
Hope this helps!
