    Hi, mind answering my question ? is it alright to do cardio after your workout like straight after workout(walk/jog/run/ on the treadmill) ? Cause i heard some ppl say that doing before the workout will cause something which i couldn't remember. Please answer my question T_T oh and if your gonna do leg workout on that day is it ok to still do cardio after it ?

  3. Intermittent fasting is good for fat loss not muscle building. I’ve done it several times and I think 6 months was my longest. I can honestly say it’s one of the coolest things I have come across for mental clarity and losing fat

  4. Hiit is the best way to burn fat. You can even build muscle if you’re sled pushing, running uphill etc. but you can’t do hiit every day. Low intensity Fasted cardio, like walking, is a good alternative on days you are not doing intense training.

  5. Thanks Scott great videos great advice always watch and go back when I need motivation to get back to the gym .. Happy New Year bro keep it up!!

  6. fasted cardio is basically a necessity if you get up early to exercise before work. and as just about everyone who does it will attest, you have so much more energy during fasted cardio. just eat something right after.

  7. How is it that you can say “caloric” properly but insist on neglecting the “r” in both carbohydrate and cardio? 🤦🏻‍♂️

  8. Hello Scott! Great info. Can you give me advice on my routine, i can only train at 5am, so is difficult to eat before. What can you tell us ?

  9. Meatheads reading studies …lol. He didn't even mention that there is a massive cortisol release during fasted training. That is the underlying mechanism which makes fasted cardio so catabolic.

  10. Does anyone else notice that he is wearing vegeta’s whis symbol battle armour or is it just me??

  11. Great video !
    I want to know if i can take Whey Protein 20 minutes prior to fasted cardio; will it prevent muscle loss ?

  12. I always hear this thing about how you will burn more carbs later after training fasted. Well I don't eat any carbs. So what then? All fat loss dude!

  13. Yo Scott, m real confused man.. as u said you gotta perform hiit workout definitely not in a fasted state.. which means that u gotta consume something like bcaa's before doing hiit workout to prevent muscle loss and not in an empty stomach.. did u meant bcaa's or something else brother..?
    And is it okay that I do weight training in the morning time and hiit workout session in the evening time to satisfy your point of not performing it in a fasted state..?

  14. I'm currently fasting on a only water fast. My primary reason for doing morning jogs is to maintain my stamina. Right now I can run 8 Miles and not even be tired afterwards. Does it help burn calories? No. Does it help keep me in shape. Yes.

  15. I’ve found a lot of cardio sessions are BETTER when 20 hours fasted, more intense (Usually HIIT). I’ve noticed this Usually when these are done in the afternoon though. Could just be me but early cardio after 12 hour fasting (overnight) can be tougher and less intense than after 20 hours fasting after being at work all day.

    This was all when I was trying to lose fat/weight but stupidly wasn’t weight training at the same time – I did lose a lot of fat though and I’m a lot happier. Now I’m weight training more and doing way less cardio I’m also eating breakfast at “breakfast time” more often.

    Currently doing a full body workout around every 48hours and playing around with my calorie intake to get an idea of my actual TDEE taking into account my exercise. On the days I don’t lift I’m doing cardio (bike, swimming, bit of running) with a day off 1 day at the weekend. If I have time I tag on 20 mins or so of steady state cardio after I lift but a lot of the time I’m knackered from the lifting.

    Fasted lifting I’ve found is way harder than fasted cardio too (high intensity cardio, not half arsing it)

  16. I’m just starting to get in the fitness, I’ve been watching your videos for about a week. They’re awesome. Are you a big Dragon Ball Z fan?

  17. How about fast training? I've been doing it for a few months. Obviously, my "break fast" is a protein shake with a banana. But does it have more negative effects than positive, like in my situation. Thanks for all your posts

  18. I always work out fasted and then stay fasted till near bed. I stay Keto using IF a few times a week. I’m making all kinds of gains.

  19. In terms of feeling off/dizzy/weak when you do fasted cardio, it's really about what you're used to. When I first started IF I felt really dizzy at about 10-11am for the first couple of weeks no matter what I was doing. Now I don't feel anything. I rarely eat before 1-2pm and don't feel hungry before then, irrespective of what I'm doing. You wouldn't find a caveman NOT running from a savage beast because he hadn't had his morning oatmeal.

  20. Im fasting then running 2 and a half miles come home and eat then at night time running 6-8 miles everyday. Im trying to get to 190 by November 14th and right now im at 200 it is know October 15th should i be at 190 by then?

  21. You don’t burn any muscle from training fasted completely opposite it boost HGH

    I don’t recommend hit cardio most people cam only do 5 to 10 minuets of hit cardio instead you should do steady cardio you’ll burn more calories like you said no shortcuts

  22. hi scott thnkx for advice just want to know what if i workout early morning should i take a small meal and workout or i should take preworkout empty stomach and workout my goal is cut and i train with heavy weight 45/60 mins follow by 10/15 min cardio. waiting for reply

  23. Hey Scott! I am usually busy and the only time to work out is in the early morning. Can a protein bar be consumed right before training? Since food takes long for it to be digested.

  24. I feel miserable if I eat anything at all before HIIT cardio. HIIT is the first thing I do every morning. If I don't my entire day is shot.

  25. This is great but what if u was on gear maybe some test tren and tbol what would be best cardio for optimal performance in in lowering your body fat when diet and training is on point???

  26. Hi scott i checked how to find my calorie from the BPM. I need to find out from you how to keep from bio stress?? I also just am fighting on how Not quite.

  27. I think the big question is how do you continue getting muscle mass and still shred fat so that abs are more visible

  28. Always on point with your advise! You bring the facts and break it down for us so we can do what we do the right way. Don't know where I'd be without this channel! Respect!!

  29. Bro if you were girl i will proposed u ,u are good handsome so sad u are man not girl🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣😁😁😁😍

  30. THANK YOU!!! I needed this so bad I kept teetertottering with this idea not knowing what’s better. You surmised everything so perfectly.

    I’m curious to learn about if it’s true about if you do too much running type of cardio it’s not good for your muscles or reduces leg gains or something? And I keep seeing mixed things on don’t run the day before or after legs and etc. I run HIIT 20-30 min 15% incline 30 sprint 1 walk rest M,W, and Th, and do legs Tuesday and Friday. I usually find that running the day before and after helps reduce muscle soreness and stretches them about to prepare for the next day better ?

  31. Nice vid as always! For me working out early in the morning works well, but as you pointed out, you need something to fill the muscles. I take a preworkout with maltodextrin and glycerol (besides the other usual stuff a pwo contains). It works great for me. Sometimes it feels a bit uncomfortable training after eating, even after like 2 hours.

  32. Love u Scott.. learned a lot about workouts. When it comes to fasting I think u may need to read a couple more studies. Human growth increases and Brown fat will burn for energy.. but if you’re not Keto or actually IF as a lifestyle you’re not fat adapted.
    Took me a yr but I am now down from 220 to 170 with best body I’ve had and great muscle def.
    Thomas D And Edward V natural athletes like yourself have shown these studies in the vids they create.
    But I’ll always come to u for the best work out 😉

  33. Very, very good video that answered all my questions about fasted vs non fasted cardio and their comparison with all the consequences to lose weight. Thumbs up n keep up the great job!

  34. What about fasted lifting? I'm not doing it for any perceived benefits, I just get up early to train before work and don't usually want to eat right away. On weekends when my gym opens later I usually end up eating before training, but I haven't noticed a big difference in the quality of the sessions.

  35. Excellent video! I've tried fasted cardio versus HIIT cardio and as far as fat loss and body composition and overall endurance the high intensity cardio worked much better. Sometimes I do still enjoy just a long slow run but that's more for overall Fitness and to clear my head. Really enjoy your videos! Thanks

  36. Can u suggest me an endomorphic diet plan my weight is 173 pounds height 5 inch 10 cm.
    MY food includes bananas cherries bueberry ,3g fish oil,1 durian seed, strwberry, wheat bread, whitebread, 1 tbsp nutella, 1 tbsp peanutbutter

  37. @ScottHermanFitness, Hi mate, i want to say thank you for your general ongoing knowledge sharing (loving the "Only 2 exercise" program – seeing results) 🙂

    I have a question, on which if i search online, i'm getting some mixed info, and i know u are the man to sort it out.

    Q: How do i increase my cardio stamina???
    short description, i'm 28 age, 1.84, and 97 kg, i'm pretty much happy with my muscular look, but i would like to take the benefits of the good cardio workout (health + removing one useless layer from the belly :D), but i always get frustrated at the gym.

    I go usually 4 times/week, train every muscle group, but when i hit the treadmill, in 10 min max, at 8-10 km speed, i'm dead, even if i do it before the muscle training, i am gasping out fast, and it kills me when i literally see people like me, or actually a lot of people in a bad overall physical "shape" which can run continuously 30-45 minutes , without any issues! i cannot wrap my head around it…..

    Your advice here would me much-much appreciated!

    Cheers !
