I’m back to posting after a work week that included visiting four cities in five days! Needless to say it’s nice to be home for the weekend. Today my plan was to hit the gym and then watch college football. Because I don’t like to workout after eating, I fasted until after my workout and had my first meal at around 4:30ish pm. That’s about a 20 hour fast! I explain here why I practice intermittent fasting. By the way, I deadlifted 325 lb., which is nearly twice my body weight, while in a fasted state, having eaten nothing, other than BCAAs, for about 18 hours before the workout.
The combination of fasting, heavy weightlifting, and low carbohydrate intake combined to keep my body in a ketogenic state, burning body fat as fuel.
I hope everyone is having a great weekend and, as always…
Be smart in the kitchen and a beast in the gym!
