36 hour fast followed by WOD

I have done several 24 hr (~6pm - 6pm) fasts, and I am in the middle of one right now. I am thinking of extending it until ~ 6am tomorrow. I always workout in the morning without eating, so I want to finish this fast with today's main page WOD.

I plan on breaking the fast with a large vegetable salad dressed with olive oil, and some deer sausage on the side.

Anyone have thoughts or advice??

Seems a little excessive IMHO. If you feel optimal doing that then go for it.

My thoughts exactly.

What are your goals?
Is a 36 hour fast followed by a WOD conducive to those goals?

Re: 36 hour fast followed by WOD

Go all out man, intermittent fasting means you should vary it quite sometimes!

I do think 24h+ fasting are a bit long on a regular basis but since it isn't a regular basis thing, go all out! Just eat super well afterward just as you are used to

People who aren't used to fasting shouldn't really give advice in this thread, ask questions fine but critize and making doubt of his thing nah....

Look he's used to fasting, he knows what he's doing ( look how the fast is being broken, good nice paleo , caloric & nutrient dense ). He's asking for advice from fellow faster's =)

Let us know how it goes! Perhaps it is gonna be the last time you do it, perhaps not!

Try. New. Things.

BTW Casey you will have to pass over my dead body first! We know how much that hunter hunger will make things turn out

36 hours? Go for 48. Or seventy-two.

Re: 36 hour fast followed by WOD

I did that once. Fasted for 36 hours, did a wod in the morning, didn't eat for another 2 hours and nearly fainted in a grocery store. I had to grab my friend next to me to keep from falling to the ground. Won't do it again. Just my experience. oh yeah, and i've never fainted in my life before so i'm pretty sure that's what caused it.

Re: 36 hour fast followed by WOD

Any particular reason for the super long fast? As a crossfitter you are burning large amounts of calories..and for your body to be able to recover and get stronger....you need to be putting calories back into it. Not to say intermittent fasting can't be beneficial, but people like Robb Wolf and others recommend only doing between 16-18 hours for a reason.
