Alright, that's what I figured the deal was with milk. Stupid "gurus" are stuck in the way of "it worked in the past for so and so, so it has to be right." And along those lines, the belief that fasted cardio is so awesome frustrates me. And people claiming weightlifting belts prevent hernias, when in fact belts can increase the chance of hernias.
Fasted (as in don't eat breakfast) morning steady state cardio is one of the dumbest bodybuilding myths. People say that because you haven't eaten anything during the night your glygocen storages are low and therefore you burn more fat. The thing is that you really don't use any glycogen during sleep. So your glygocen storages are as high as they were when you went to bed. Fasted morning cardio is in fact catabolic. The fact that you have low aminoacids in your blood means that you'll burn off your muscles. Always eat before morning cardio, but keep it low carb and keep your insuin low (so no whey protein). Eat meat, low carb veggies, eggs and so forth.
Steady state cardio is the worst kind of cardio for a bodybuilder. Intervals (especially HIIT) have been proven to be far superior to stedy state cardio in numerous studies when it comes to fat burning and building muscle. That is why sprinters are ripped and muscular and marathon runners are what they are. HIIT is sickening, but do want to be a marathong runner or a bodybuilder?

Its about the glycogen in your liver, not muscles. Though you may be right. During a keto diet or low carb, it would be great to go for a low intensity cardio session immediately after waking up so you dig into your fat sources at a faster rate, plus if you have too much glycogen in your system then you will burn some of it and deplete your stores sooner.
I would never do "fasted" cardio upon wakening, I think it's best to get a small protein meal (20-40 grams) and some BCAA's before cardio in the morning. Probably best to leave out the carbs until after your exercise is done, because the sugar in the blood and release of insulin could blunt some of the fat loss.
The truth behind hany rimbjob ehm hany rambod program is as simple as it gets: fascia stretch and thus muscle belly expansion through the use of SEO, carbs/bcaa/creatine mid workout drink plus insulin, nothing much new at all. The usage of insulin was already advocated by Sarcev himself, which is well known for working with supersets and giant sets for maximum pump and enhance the blood flow to muscle granting a faster shuttle of nutrients to them. Rambod fsbull**** 7 is essentially a short rest giant set, yeah big improvement in the weight lifting
