FASTED CARDIO


Fasted cardio is probably the best workout for weight loss. At this time the body uses stored fat and carbohydrates for energy rather than the food being eaten thus resulting in higher levels of fat loss. The specialty of fasted cardio is that it can be done at any time of the day when body is in a fasted state. 


BENEFITS OF FASTED CARDIO 

1) BURNS STORED ENERGY OR FAT - People opt for fasted cardio because working out on an empty stomach forces the metabolism to adapt according to it. However, the type and intensity of the exercise performed plays a major role in the way the body uses your stored fat in the body.

2) WORKS WITH INTERMITTENT FASTING - Intermittent fasting or eating only during a short window of time throughout the day means that the morning workout should occur only during the fasting period. While there are many different types of intermittent fasting and various researches are being conducted on all of its benefits and side effects. Fasted cardio easily fits into many of these plans. 

3) IT CAN BE DONE IMMEDIATELY UPON WAKING UP - There is no better benefit of fasted cardio than the fact that you eliminate the time it takes to consider fueling for your workout. Normally a person will wait about 30 minutes after eating to start the workout which means that if your goal is a 6:00 a.m. workout you will have to finish your breakfast before 5:30 am. With fasted cardio there is no need to wake up earlier to make a pre-workout meal or snack and you can just go to work out right away and there is no need to worry about the nutrition.
