To lift in the morning? Of course not. You should eat at least a little bit – a granola bar, yogurt – before working out.

Go for it! I’m at the gym at 5:45AM lifting heavy weights 3x a week! I would actually eat something beforehand. I usually just eat a banana or nutri-grain bar…just to get something in my stomach. And warms-up/stretching are a must so you don’t hurt yourself.

Definitely try to nibble on a little something (banana, peanut butter on toast, yogurt, something!) and absolutely eat something with a good amount of protein after your workout.

Also, if you’re trying to tone up, you might want to up the weights a bit as well.  I don’t mean squat the whole weight rack, but use a good 30-40 pounds for chest & back, and for squats/lunges/dead lifts try using 40-50 (unless you’re completely and totally inexperienced, in which case ask a trainer or fitness guru to help you with your form so you don’t get injured!)
