I think one of the biggest reasons why I've come to enjoy training heavy while fasted is that it mentally challenges me to push past the dire urge to cut my workout short. If you know me well, you know how much I enjoy lifting heavy shit (pretty much every time I make a trip to the gym😅)..I actually consider myself somewhat of a bodybuilder/powerlifter hybrid but never one more than the other..if that makes sense. Anyway weight training is undoubtedly one of the best ways to build mental toughness & adding to that, lifting heavy is the best way to build good muscle density. Obviously that's my powerlifter side talking, now my bodybuilder side will tell you that it's also important to produce quality muscle contractions and maintain strict form with lighter more manageable weight! Be smart & you will GROW. For those of you who are curious, I often get asked if I use pre-workout. I do not. Nothing against it but I prefer not to use any of that stuff (I have used them in the past & honestly I think a large majority of the products out there have a placebo effect). Not all, but most.. I'd rather rely on my own energy reserves for the most part. I do however always use bcaa's beforehand every time I plan on exercising on an empty stomach, occasionally creatine as well. If you have any questions leave comments below, if you have any helpful tips for me drop those bad boys in the comments section as well!
