Your Working Out in Ramadan Guide

Published

on

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

Before Iftar:

  • 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

After Iftar:

  • 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

 

Tips:

  • 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

Mind-Blowing Health Tips

We always hear about tips with regards to maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Sleep early, wake up early, exercise…, etc. But there are other tips which may sound like they’re not truethey are. And we have compiled six of them for you!

 

  1. Drink coffee before you nap. At first this may sound crazy. Why would I drink coffee if I want to sleep?! The fact is, drinking a cup of coffee before a 20-minute nap will help you become more alert once you wake up, because 20 minutes is roughly the time needed for the effect of coffee to start to kick in.
  2. Eat more so you can eat less. It sounds crazy! But no! Eating more in the sense of grabbing a nutritious meal/snack instead of a cracker as a snack, because a cracker, for example, would lead you to feel more inclined to eat as it would increase your appetite. Try instead to have an apple along with some peanut butter.
  3. If you’re too tired, don’t go for Redbull! The idea here is that though Redbull sound like the wises option, it would rather cause unpleasant side effects such as irritability and anxiety, due to its high levels of caffeine.
  4. If hot, drink hot! It makes sense–wait for it. In India, people are used to drinking a hot beverage during the hot weather, because a cup of tea, for example, would lead a person to produce more sweat, and that sweat eventually evaporates and cools off the body.
  5. If exhausted, go for a run! The idea here is that exercising energizes your fatigue and reduces depression and changes your mood.
  6. Don’t type. Write. Though typing your notes would allow for more space and room for huge amount of data, writing them down would actually be a better alternative, because it would lead you to memorize that which you’ve written down.

In an attempt to protect the environment, the country of Denmark has devised a new way with which it can inform the public with impact of consumed goods. Thereby allowing shoppers to be informed prior to making a purchase.

The idea is that food products will have stickers on them that show their environmental impact. This came as a proposal by the government and will establish the project by this week. “We want to give consumers the means to assess in supermarkets the environmental impact of products,” said the Minister for the Environment in Denmark.

This sure is a great idea. It allows for the general public to be informed and conscious about the surrounding environment.
