Should you eat before morning HIIT? HIIT routines are high intensity cardio workouts and they require a lot from the body. It is important to properly fuel the body to ensure it has the energy it needs for the high demands. So, it is important to eat before a HIIT workout.
Should I do HIIT in the morning on an empty stomach? “Steady cardio burns fat and can be done when you wake and without eating. But try to go to that HIIT workout on an empty tummy. You’ll not only have noticeably decreased performance but also likely feel sick and off-balance as your body scrambles for energy for the higher-intensity pieces but has nothing to grab.”
Should you eat before or after a HIIT workout? ‘For a HIIT workout it’s best to fuel up on a source of faster-releasing carbohydrates and protein in the form of a pre-workout meal around three to four hours before, or a small snack around an hour before your workout,’ says nutritionist Jenna Hope.
