If you were to fast for 48 hours and wanted to go to gym, would you focus more on cardio the first fasting day and focus on lifting on the second day or would you do the opposite? The goal is to maximise fatloss while minimising muscle loss.

I would say light cardio on day 1 and weights on day 2. The big thing would be breaking the fast right after your weight lifting session, as your body would need the nutrients.

48 hours too long and unnecessary imo.

But yeah, I train fasted 90% of tge time now, minimal difference for me compared to eating before.

Tried internment fasting and helped me get in best shape of my life. Also helped break free of tge whole 6 meals a day bull****

Just try And pay attention how your body respond to it.
2nd this. I raced off-road motorcycles at the highest levels for 25-years. And still Mtn bike on an empty stomach. I Only eat from 7:00 to 9:00 PM every stinking day. If you're new to fasting I suggest acclimating yourself and get used to how your carburetors work. Once you know your system fully, then rock on better than before. Welcome to better health.

I don't work out fasting. I did 20hrs and my lift was pathetic. Do a 4day split or 5. Use fasting on your off days. I lift or more accurately do calisthenics with gym closures. Test out and see what you respond to from training. 16hr fasts I can train no problem.

Neither cardio nor heavy lift will benefit you. It's dangerous as you can pass out very easily.

Im heavy squatting on a 20 hour fast.

Your body gets used to it and we have lived most of our existence like this. We would hunt when we were hungry, not when we weren't hungry.

I've done 7 days its fine with great results.
Just do your normal routine to prevent muscle loss. Just don't overdo your training. As someone here motioned your body get used to it fast changes also to keto state and starts using proteins as fuel (e.g. fat), Remember to drink a lot of water and keep that in check. Moderate cardio is fine, just don't try a Marathon on the treadmill... Most important is that you listen to your body and it's signals. Also don't try 7 days straight right away and try to mimic me just because I mentioned here that I done it. Don't try to be a superman or something. You need to build it up over time. Start with one to two days first. Also you when you exit your training fasting phase you must be very careful with your diet and keep training or your body will quickly trying to bounce back to gain the pre-weight you had. To keep the benefits don't slack on your training or diet. You must be very disciplined about this.

I have started fasting in before pandemic and lock down 1.0. We're on what iteration 3 or 4 and I am going strong still. Home gym is next level motivation level. I had a 6x split in summer and spring. Running 4x atm.

The fasting fad is unhealthy and dangerous. Just eat when youre hungry and don't eat when youre not hungry. As simple as that.
