I’m a light weight body builder who has always done cardio first thing in the morning on an empty stomach. Did a 1/2 marathon last year and was very successful. Now going back to body building but I want to change my workouts. I would like to strength train 1st thing in the morning and do cardio later in the afternoon. Will I see the same success?
In the morning – your body already in catabolic state.What that means?It means that in the night your body literally start eating yourself up (degrading muscles process).What happen if you not eat in the morning – the process gets deeper and it will be more difficult to save your metabolism from extreme muscle breakdown.
Muscle breakdown – slow metabolism -your body start “conserve energy” – and finally you end up to gain weight more!
