If you have been exercising regularly, it is still possible to continue doing so during Ramadan. Stick to lower intensity exercises if you are doing cardio, like brisk walking instead of running. It is advisable to do resistance training like squats, lunges, push-ups, but maintain your current level of intensity or take it a notch down. Ramadan is not the time to aim for a personal best or push your limit. Timing of exercise is also important. Ideally, you should exercise when you are adequately fuelled and able to have a post-workout meal. Usually, this is after Iftar and after a light meal, or early in the morning just before Sahur, the pre-dawn meal. Some may find these timings difficult and opt to do in the morning after Sahur or just before Iftar so that they can break their fast immediately after exercise. As long as you are comfortable and do not have any symptoms of dehydration like lethargy, dizziness and cramps, you may continue. It is advisable to exercise indoors or in sheltered venues outdoors to avoid excessive heat and sun exposure that can lead to dehydration. Are you ready to be fasting fit?
