DUBAI – Working out during Ramadan is challenging, but that shouldn’t be a reason for you to stop your goal of staying fit.
To help you maintain your fitness during the holy month here are some tips from the fitness experts at BARE in Dubai.
Eat within an hour only and try to keep 90 percent of your food free from sugar, grains and potato. Late night before bed time, eat 1 to 2 eggs with half an vocado, and/or some yogurt. Avoid food that will dehydrate you.
One to two cheat meals a week will keep you motivated and social.
Burn fat, not lean muscle, and keep your metabolism boosted. The best time to train is before iftar, you can break your fast immediately after training with isotonic drinks, fruit or a protein shake.
You are more likely to burn muscle rather than fat, you don’t want to put unnecessary stress on your nervous system and organs.
Your goal is maintenance and not fitness progression. If you currently workout, reduce your effort level to 60 percent, at least for the first few sessions.
