    its not fasted if you have that whey. you'll be fine with 30 minutes. the coffee will give ya a boost, and the green tea will help suppress cortisol levels. keep intensity nice and slow, especially if your Bodyfat is at the lower end.

    not an expert and i'm sure you can get better advice from the guys, but from experience, AM cardio works. consuming any calories is going to effect max fat burning. personally i don't think you have to worry about any muscle loss. keep it nice, simple and easy and your body will willingly let go of fat to preserve muscle. i'd stay in the range of 20-45 min.

    Re: Fasted Morning Cardio

    I do fasted cardio every morning for 45-60 minutes. Either low intensity or mix of low intensity plus 15 minutes HIIT. Even with a healthy dose of T3, no muscle loss.

    Of course, I've never done fasted cardio without being on AAS. So I can't comment on the catabolic effects while not on AAS.

    Re: Fasted Morning Cardio

    do your cardio post weight training. same effect without having to deal with possible muscle loss. chris aceto said anything over 30 minutes fasted will begin to cut into muscle.
