    I was going to post this in the B-section but I remembered some brothers don't have access yet.

    To those brothers who do strength-training/bodybuilding, what do you guys do during Ramadan?? I'm not so much focused on keeping my current muscle mass, since I know it is damn near impossible to do that because of my diet, but I would like to keep my strength especially in the big three.

    Asalam 3leikoum wr wb,

    Push ups push ups and more push ups sets of 50. Eat 2 full meals 1 at iftar the other at sahoor and try to jog or sprint in the e veining. There ya have your core strength and some cardio.

    Ramadan Mubarek

    Some of the gyms round my way open after taraweeh for those who are dedicated enough.

    I know some bros who train an hour before iftar, but you need to be fanatical for that.

    Khair there's nothing wrong with taking a month off to concentrate of the spirit rather than the body.

    Well as I've lost track of my training over the past few months I've decided from next week to do just cardio and natural strength building excercises like push ups etc

    I was thinking to go just before Iftar also.

    I know some brothers who miss taraweeh to go gym. Not a good plan.

    As waziri Bhai has stated sometimes we sacrifice for this month the body to help our soul. The heart is the most important muscle both for physical health and purity of the nafs.

    Good points guys. Don't think i'm so messed up in the head that i would work out before iftar LOL! My brother went to Football practice today right before iftar.. Don't think he will be doing that again.

    I think once we get into the month then playing football etc should be ok

    hey I mean if badr happened in Ramadan add to that Ramadan is to make us stronger and not weaker then we shouldn't give up on physical excercise.....but it should be done in a way which will not make us sacrifice this once a year opportunity to gain hasanaat upon hasanaat

    wa billahi tawfeeq!

    I do 10 minutes of cardio before Iftaar and weight training before suhoor. It's tiring but that ten minutes of cardio helps me from overeating when I break my fast.
