A question that has been circulating social media for the past few days
What is the perfect time to work out in Ramadan? Should you work out in Ramadan at all?
Working out in Ramadan gets way harder due to long fasting hours. The lack of food and water make us feel like we aren’t capable of doing the minimal movement, never mind exercising.
well, the truth is, fasting should not be an excuse to miss your gym classes or gain extra few pounds; on the contrary, Ramadan is a chance to lose few pounds and get ins shape
- Training before Iftar is recommended for weight loss
- Drink as much water as you can from Iftar to Sohour
- The best time to work out is the last hour before Iftar
- When you exercise before Iftar leads to losing weight as your body tends to burn more saturated fats
- If your goal is to build muscles, then training after Iftar is the best for you
- Train after Iftar with a couple of hours, so your Iftar would have the time to be digested
- Make sure you have a healthy Iftar meal
- Don’t work out in an open space during fasting hours, that might lead you to feel unwell
- Whenever you decide to exercise, make sure you stay dehydrated from Iftar to Sohour
- If you want to go for a run, the best time is around dawn (from 2 to 5 a.m)
- Make sure to include protein and carbohydrate
