Ramadan starts this wkend. Refraining from consuming food and drink from dawn until sunset for 30 days is obviously challenging to say the least but, if your goal is to improve your health and body composition, it can also be a metabolic disaster if u don't plan ahead! However, with correct training and nutrition, you can even optimise on this time and make great improvements in both your health&physique.
It is even more important that u continue ur workouts during the fasting period to maintain the results Iv already worked so hard to achieve. But, remember, during the month of fasting your body is under increased stress and therefore adding exercise stress to ur routine needs to be done wisely. Exercise needs to be at a level u can recover from adequately. •train 3 times per week, whole body strength workouts, this will keep body stress down and maintain ur strength&muscle
•train either early in the morning after the first meal of the day or after ur first meal post fasting so u have adequate nutrients for the intensity of the session. •sessions should be shorter, around 45mins max-but hard and intense, with adequate time for recovery.
If you would like any further info on training during Ramadan, please DM me. Shukran 🙏🏻
