Increase v02? Fasted or fed better?

Answered on August 19, 2014
Created October 14, 2011 at 12:07 PM

After reading a lot on lean gains and literature on fed training ie Lane norton. How would I best be suited to train (running-10km racer) to better my v02? My current measure level is 60ml/kg and want to know feedback on whether it is better to train a)fasted (after 12hours of eating) b)fed (within 3 hours etc)

Also, Is from a vanity point, if leanish but looking for that extra bit of fat loss, Is it best to train light cardio fasted or tempo running(zone3-glycolytic) for 45 minutes?

Thanks

If you're interested in how to train you might try browsing http://www.letsrun.com/ forums or getting a coach. Nobody in here as far as I can tell is in sub 30 shape for the 10k.

A level of 60ml/kg/min is pretty high and suggest that you need to train rather hard, to improve further. Fasted training is OK as long as your intensity is high enough. I would suggest that easy training can be done in a fasted state and the hard intervals in a fed state.

In elite distance running higher V02 max is rarely associated with performance.
