Every study on fasted exercise confirms higher growth hormone production and increased circulating fatty acids. That said, when depleted, you must weigh the costs and benefits. Here I am at the end of a 52 hour fast. I missed on 585, which should’ve been easy with reverse bands; and I was shot at 10 reps with 405, which I could normally do without bands. So, does the benefit of GH and fat breakdown outweigh the cost of much lower intensity? I don’t know. It depends on what you’re trying to do, and expectations. During concerted cutdown or just maximizing longevity, I think so. During mass gain or athletic peak performance, I think not.
