would it be a good idea to eat your carbs at night before your fasted workout in the the morning?

@Boro - So I ate 2 days ago...does that make my workout this AM not fasted? Certainly you have to put SOME time limit but if you eat at night and then don't eat breakfast that AM how is it NOT fasted?

This is the current protocol I'm using and I've been happy with the results. For more info just do a google search on "carb back-loading".

If you eat carbs before it, it's not a "fasted workout". The word(s) you are looking for is "not-fasted".

Yes, I think it's a great idea. Like Matt said, the carb backloading protocol for people who train in the morning, call for fasted workouts, and backload (carb refeed) the prior night.

According to Kiefer, your insulin response will also be greated after the postworkout with less carbs, if you recently had a carb refeed the night before. So this is another benefit. He then recommends going back to low carb the rest of the day. Refeed again when you have a workout the next morning.
