During Ramadan, many Muslims will start fasting between dawn and sunset throughout the holy month.
In order to healthily fast there’s a lot to think about – like what food to eat when you do break, what you should be drinking and how to prevent a disrupted sleep schedule. Another big consideration for many practising Muslims is how best to exercise during the holy period.
There’s no reason you should stop working out because you’re fasting, but it’s obvious you shouldn’t be aiming for PBs in weightlifting during this time. You have to be a bit more careful with how and when you exercise, as your body isn’t as fuelled as it might normally be.
This is what a medical professional and a personal trainer have to say about working out during Ramadan.
