Fasting and Muscle Endurance

Alright, I finished Craig Ballatyne's 500 Workout.

I don't think that guy likes fact, I think he's trying to kill me!

The workout was super intense. I promised Craig I wouldn't give away the entire workout as its available to his members at, however I can tell you this - I don't think I have ever done that many reps in a workout out before, especially of body weight rows (talk about fried rear-delts!)

I managed to get into the gym around 2:30, exactly 24 hours into my fast. I warmed up for about 4 minutes then got right into the workout.

24 minutes and 44 seconds later, I was sweating, my heart was pounding out my chest, my arms were ridiculously pumped, and..I was done.

The lessons learnt for me were:

1) Craig has designed a wicked workout

2) You can accomplish some very good feats of muscular endurace after what was essentially a one day fast.

I tip my hat to the guys in the NFL who are fasting right now!
