Welcome to the EliteFitness.com Bodybuilding Site! Please join this discussion about Can you cycle if you are fasting? within the Anabolic Steroids category.

Excerpt: Well, my friend is a muslim, and in couple of weeks his fasting month is going to start, where he can eat at about 5pm and he can't eat after 4am. My question is can he do a cycle at the time being or is it better to start later? Will i guess he can but the gains won't be that good, cause he doesnt have much time to get all his calories Any suggestions??

    Fasting during a cycle is simply a waste of gear.

    More difficult problem would be not drinking water.
    If he works out, he would be badly dehydrated.

    He's not really going to gain anything, but the gear would definitely help to minimize muscle loss during his fasting.

    Thats true. but still a waste. when my friends fast they cant even work out. or they can but like an hour before 5pm so they can eat right away.

    No food, no precious nitrogen retention. ^^ Like they said, a complete waste of gear.

    There won't be a complete absense of food, it's just restricted to certain times during the day. Granted, it's not the best cycle, but I don't believe that it would be a waste of gear either.

    I have read about some Muslim BB'ers doin it. If he has his priorities in line the choice is clear.
    "Mr. Madison, what you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I've ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response was there anything that could even be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul."

    You're not going to gain without the protein and calories in order to allow for nitrogen retention. Maybe you can 'splain to me how you would achieve this while fasting. Since AS only increases protein sythesis splain to me what good it's going to do if there isn't any.
