today’s video part 4 of a 5 day video series titled:

strength training for fasters


Here are my notes:

  • you will approach strength training differently based on the fasting template that you’re using and your goals
  • you can modify these suggestions
  • here’s a warning: don’t overdue during a fast
  • if you start fasting, you’ll start to get out of your own way. the peace, the stillness and the solitude will open you up to be led


  1. we’re not here to make gains as much as reducing our addiction to food and other addictions. we can set aside muscle building for a short period of time.  but we want to maintain our strength.  we don’t necessarily need a full breakdown of muscle that we do when we’re really building muscle.  Don’t pump, just stimulate
  2. we use high intensity, which means heavy weight, low volume which means 2-4 sets of 3-5 reps, but go to the gym every other day
  3. Elliott suggests full body workout 3-4 times a week. alternate between grind workout and go workout. grinding is squeezing the muscle and go really slow.  the go workout is above moving weights quickly
  4. use compound movements like squats, bench and pull-ups
  5. avoid failure – during fasting, its not necessary.


this is a pattern interrupt.  it’s a good idea to change things up sometimes




Let’s figure it out!  The Fasting Motivation podcast is not medical advice.

watch Elliott for the rest of the story


Repeat after me:

today, I will go to the gym, today
