My schedule has changed for a bit, moving me to afternoons. Typically, I train in the mornings, after everyone leaves for work and school (benefit of living right next door to my office). I train fasted and can not imagine trying to eat before training. I would puke every session if I did so.
One thing I recommend. When you sleep, the fluid in your discs settles. Give yourself some time before starting in the gym to let your back "wake up" and everything to readjust to being upright and moving. I believe it is McGill that recommends 45-60 minutes before anything that will affect the back.
