Fasted Cardio and Glycogen


#1

Let’s say you accidentally forgot breakfast and were at a basketball game. However if you still have glycogen left from last night, would you burn muscle?
For example someone doing OMAD or just eating big at night. Wouldnt they have more glycogen to use before muscle if the basketball game or cardio in general is let’s say, at noon?

The amount of muscle you’d burn from a basketball game, if any, would be so small it couldn’t possibly make a difference in your strength or physique. You’d have glycogen left if you ate big the night before, yes, but you’re way overthinking this.
