I have been using kettlebells for the last 16 years and Iusually do 500 1 arm swings with a 24kg kettlebell and 125 bodyweight dips on parallel bars each alternate day.
I have just started reducing calories and began my first fasting excercise session yesterday after fasting for 16.5 hours.
I even did 300 and 75 dips then walked 3 miles with the dog and came back and completed the other 200 and the remaining 50 dips to break it up a bit
But I felt totally burned out after.
I always feel a bit tired after the sessions but this time I was light headed and felt pretty awful.
I felt like I had literally run out of steam and had to grit my teeth to finish the session.
I know I have always had to eat regularly when I go out with my local cycling club doing 50 mile rides as I tend to run out of steam and start “bonking”
Just wondering if anyone else does this sort of level of training and continues with fasting- or has anyone else felt like this?
I expected the hunger pangs but just manned up and distracted myself, but this burned out feeling was not a place I would like to regularly find myself.
Any tips/ accounts of similar experiences from others would be welcome.
Thanks In advance
