Exercise response in fasted state
Are there any references that deal with the response to resisitance exercise while in a fasted state?
DeVany asserts that PostWO meals defeat the purpose of the exercise, i.e. build muscle, lose fat.
Contrary to this, many feel PostWO meals enhance/speed recovery. What kind of PWO meals should be considered, in that case, and what would the optimal window of consumption be post-workout?
Would there be any benefit to small amounts of protein ingested prior to training in a fasted state? I know that some studies have indicated that there is a positive impact on protein synthesis and positive nitrogen balance.
I guess the geist of this is, if I were to exercise in a fasted state should I:
1. Eat a small amount of protein pre-workout?
2. Break the fast immediately after?
3. Break the fast after a waiting period (say, an hour)?
