A new study conducted by the Massey University shared that exercising an empty stomach may be good for male fitness. Steve Stannard, Associate Professor at MU's new School of Sport and Exercise conducted the study who shared that training a body is mainly about putting the body under stress and not going faster.
Two groups of cyclists were included by the researchers in the study. One group was given a high carbohydrate breakfast before training and the other group was trained with an empty stomach. Training before consuming breakfast was more successful as those were able to store higher levels of muscle glycogen than those who ate breakfast before training.
The female cyclists improved their muscle's fat-burning capacity when they trained after having breakfast. Stannard said, "In an endurance event, such as road race cycling, the person who can start the race with the highest level of glycogen in their muscles, yet have the greatest ability to burn fat has a huge advantage".
Doing exercise with nothing in stomach encourages muscles to adapt in a more accelerated fashion in men as compared to training that is done after eating a high carbohydrate meal.
