This is my question: the fasting month is coming in July and in Malaysia we are fasting for approximately 12hours (4am to 7pm) for 30 days straight. I usually work out in the mornings so am worried that by the afternoon I would be feeling faint as I don't like eating at 4am ( I usually just drink milk tea). I was wondering when I should work out cus working out after eating at 7pm makes me want to barf. Thanks

I don't think you should work out personally, other than maybe a walk or bike ride. You don't want to burn a bunch of cals on an empty stomach and I know what you mean about working out after eating, maybe you could eat something small at 7, workout and then eat a larger meal? If not I would just keep the cal burn low as not to drain your body... Someone else here may have more insight or info that can help... Best if luck

Personally I would avoid cardio an HIIT altogether. Maybe do light body weight exercises just to keep in the groove. Ab exercises burn very little calories while giving good results. :-)

I would keep your workouts to a minimum during Ramadhan. Sometimes a walk after breaking the fast is nice, but I would say conserve your energy.  Especially since you can not drink water during the fasting time, I would skip the workouts.

I think a minimal workout is advisible during fasting. Walk for half an hour a day, may be this could burn some calories.
