Ramadan is a month of abstinence, and known as the period when Muslims all over the world abstain from food, drink, and other physical needs during daylight hours. But more importantly, Ramadan is the time to purify the soul and grow closer with Allah.
While it is certainly a challenge to train on an empty stomach, fasting in Ramadan has its many benefits, one of which is spiritual nourishment. It is an opportunity for self-reflection and turning one’s focus inwards. The act of fasting is practiced to remind us of how the less fortunate are suffering and to reinforce our values of humanity.
It has also been a misconception that one must stop training during this period. As long as one is equipped with the proper fitness program during Ramadan, performing daily exercise routines should not be a challenge.
In fact, a common fat-burning strategy employed by athletes, bodybuilders, and fitness enthusiasts is to perform cardiovascular exercise on an empty stomach, also known as fasted cardio. This style of fat loss was made popular by Phil Phillips in his book “Body of Life,” stating that performing 20 minutes of aerobic exercise after a fast has greater effects on fat loss than an hour of cardio.
Combining proper exercise with a healthy diet, will allow the body to transform at a faster and healthier rate.
