How does fasting affect the optimal functioning of the anabolic window process.
It seems like the anabolic window would be boarded up, in anticipation of the catabolic hurricane known as fasting.
Lots of muscle fibres withering away in this thread.

One day, when you are old and single, walking around on your own and you see a happy elderly couple out walking with their grandchildren, come and say hi.
Maybe we can talk about all the women you are having sex with.
Why are people so sure of the future.
My mother who is also a grandmother is in a nursing home with MS and dementia for the past 5 years. And my father who is also a grandfather is miserable and spends his days visiting my mother, instead of having the happy retirement that he worked his whole life and saved for.

Sir Donald George Bradman, AC (27 August 1908 – 25 February 2001), often referred to as "The Don", was an Australian cricketer, widely acknowledged as the greatest Test batsman of all time. Bradman's career Test batting average of 99.94 is often cited as the greatest achievement by any sportsman in any major sport.
Rank Batsman Career average 1 Don Bradman 99.94

World sport context
Wisden hailed Bradman as, "the greatest phenomenon in the history of cricket, indeed in the history of all ball games". Statistician Charles Davis analysed the statistics for several prominent sportsmen by comparing the number of standard deviations that they stand above the mean for their sport. The top performers in his selected sports are:
Athlete Sport Statistic Standard deviations
Bradman Cricket Batting average 4.4
Pelé Association football Goals per game 3.7
Ty Cobb Baseball Batting average 3.6
Jack Nicklaus Golf Major titles 3.5
Michael Jordan Basketball Points per game 3.4The statistics show that "no other athlete dominates an international sport to the extent that Bradman does cricket
". In order to post a similarly dominant career statistic as Bradman, a baseball batter would need a career batting average of .392, while a basketball player would need to score an average of 43.0 points per game. The respective records are .366 and 30.1.

I watched some rugby dude with 190kg on his back go all the way down, pause for a 3 count then squat up. Sets of 5. Pretty impressive to me.
I've been squatting like this, this year. High bar, narrow stance, rock bottom with a few second pause, I even relax the muscles a bit at the bottom (I'm not sure if this is dangerous, it feels ok and safe to me), then explode the weight up. Only need to use 100kg at the moment using this method, intense muscle contraction in order to break inertia and build momentum. Feels like 140+kg barbell worth of tension on the muscles, but only 100kg of stress on the joints, ligaments and tendons.
I've been doing less ego lifting lately as getting older, finding techniques to make the exercises harder with less weight.
