The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    Morning lifting

    If I lift in the morning do I need to eat a meal before hand? I was planning on just getting up and going to the gym, then eating my post workout meal, and then eating lunch not too long after.

    You should have something before you train. Your body was just in starvation mode for 8 hours, and needs food.

    I lift an hour after I get up.

    I have a small shake for breakfast. Usually 1/2-3/4 serving of MHP Up Your Mass.
    Without progression, I am nothing.

    Early Morning training

    I weight train first thing in the morning at 630am. Get up, and off to the gym. Afterwards I make sure I get some good protein, but I have heard that the body is in a catabolic state when after sleep due to the amount of time without food. Am I actually burning muscle during training then? I am used to training first thing and feel fine doing it, just wandering if training on an empty stomach is a bad idea and not good for muscle building (although I take a protein shake straight after). I figured my body would still have carbs etc from the day before to use

    There's a post titled Morning Lifting that's 6 posts from the top of this forum.

    You didn't even try to see if this question had been asked before!

    Eat something before you train.

    Edit: Someone merged the two threads and now I look dumb.

    Thanks for the advice. I dont really fancy a protein shake before and after a workout at that time in morning Would a quick carb meal prior to workout do the job then get some protein after, or do I need the before and after protein?

    I cook my oats in milk. Protein and carbs in one delicious porridge.
