Eat to break the fast: ate fruit salad, dates, Beef paties, chicken and potatoes samosas, lemonade, french fries. And then before going to the gym I had 5 boiled eggs.
GYMDeadlifts: 60kg for 9 reps. 70kg for 9 reps.
Underhand chins: 2 sets of 10 reps each, stayed in the bottom half...
BArbell rows: 30kg for 10 reps. 35kg for 9 reps.
After gym eating - had about 350ml of milk. a burrito filled with chicken and sauce, the only bad thing in that was the mayonise...
Note: I have lost alot of strength, the last time I did deadlifts it was 100kg for 8 reps. and the max was 120kg for 5 or 6 reps. now it was hard even doing 70kg for 6 reps. but I somehow pushed myself to 9 reps. also my forearms are sore, I have resumed the gym (to regularity) after about 4 months, and in those 4 months the 1st two months I went to the gym like 4-5 times a months and food was too low. and the later two months I strated HIIT at home and went to tht gym like 2 times in the whole 2 months.... I need to get the strength up...
I'm following along, I am trying to fast myself this month as well, not for religious reasons, just personal here.
Good luck man, I have family doing this too. Looks rough!
Those meals are beastly though!
My parents created my body, in which I create my mind. I will honor them, by developing both to their utmost potential.
The mosque gives us some good high quality food for iftar and dinner (rice, baked chicken, vegetables, and watermelon for dessert) so I'm going to get back into the gym after Taraweeh. Before Ramadan, I usually work out 4 or 5 days a week with cardio. I skipped the past few days just so my body can get used to the fasting. I feel like I'm used to it now, so I'm going to go starting today. Wish me luck!

If you ask me personally you made a good call skipping a few days, now get back in there and start with low intensity and short basic workouts.
Good luck brother! it'll be good to know what u did and how it went.
For breaking the fast today I had less variety of foods... I am getting bored of my foods :/ - Dates, fruit salad, salad, a glass of mango milkshake.
Before going to the gym I ate a lamb meat.
Did Shoulders today
Standing Overhead Press with Barbell: 30kg for 14 reps.
DB Side Laterals: 10kg dumbbell pair for 17 reps.
Reverse pec dec: some 6-7 plates for 30 reps.
Barbell Clean and Press, HIIT fashion: (well, here I was supposed to do 6 rounds of 45 secs lifts and 45 secs rest. But what I did was 3 rounds, i'll tell why in the end.) 20kg for 3 rounds.
HIIT cardio: 7 mins, 30secs on 45 secs rest periods.
After exercise had some milk and nothing, wasn't willing to eat anything just cause I am bored of the food I am eating... Gotta fix that!
NOTE - Gym was soo suffocating, Could hardly breathe! there is no AC in the gym, it was hot too! thou I stayed hydrated. As I have said earlier I have lost alot of strength and resumed the gym after a while so my back (from tomorrow's workut) and my forearms are all sore, clean and presses killed my back even more... it was a sucide to keep on doing it in that suffocation so I just left after 3 rounds. My foods, I want a huge buffet every day with variety of foods so I may never ever get bored of foods and keep on eating and can grow... My PR's will come As soon as I regain my strength, till then I am working with the low weights...
Soreness for me.... well, it depends... I like soreness, but this soreness which is when you train after soo many off days... this is bad, well not bad and I don't DISLIKE it. I just hope for it to go away soon and leaving me strong...
Broke the fast about 50mins ago... time to load up something more in me and then after like 30 mins off to the gym to train some arms.
