I’ve got a question about fasted rides. I’ve been doing them quite a bit lately, and feel like I’m seeing some benefits. I’ve also been fasting on non training days, or days that I train later in the day at high intensity until lunch time. The fasting seems much easier than simply eating less to me for some reason.
If I was to finish a fasted ride after 9 hours of fasting, would there be any harm in continuing to fast 4-6 or more? I’ve been finding 16 hours seems reasonable to me, and dont find the hours after the ride unbearable.
My only goal in this sort of pre base phase is to burn some fat. Once I start SSB in a few weeks I plan to fit 1 or 2 fasted rides in a week, but far less regular.
