I'm gonna post this in the training section too. I work nights on a 4on 4 off pattern, when i'm working I have a tight schedule to sleep, train eat and get back to work. I get uphave a real strong coffee and train, I find it doesnt hamper my training at all I actually train very well, very strong etc. What I do is I have a meal before bed at 07.00 then up at 14.00 and train at 14.30.
Am I doing any harm but time is really the issue.

    Is this weight traning or cardio?

    Either way you're training un-fueled, which works for some people, but it certainly isn't my cup of tea.

    wake up 20 minutes earlier and eat something. If you're working out that soon after waking up I'd suggest a protein/dextrose/glutamine mix upon waking, then a well-balanced meal after you finish training. Lifting weights on an empty stomach is silly and easily avoidable.
