Just finished a 36 hour fast, first ever. Really felt euphoric after 16 hours, empty by 24 and lean like Gandhi by 36.
Look forward to the next few, it really feels like your being vacuum packed from the inside out!
Used to do the 16 hour+ daily fasts but rarely got much effect under 17% bf... although it got me down from 26% so that's brilliant, especially if starting out.

The gym was good today...
started with 5 mins of HIIT 30secs on 45 secs rest...
Barbell clean presses: 25kg for 10+10+8 reps. 20kg for 10+10 reps. to be honest that 25kg killed!
Jump deads: 80kgx5+5 reps. 90kgx5+5 reps. 100kgx5 reps.
Ended with 5 mins of HIIT same as started.

feeling a bit bad on my stomach today... i guess its cause of low water intake, or prolly no water intake atall during daylight hours... i was thinking of maybe taking an off day from fast and properly hydrate myself and refocus and recover...

Would it be so bad if he is just drinking water? I think that's what he's is talking about... Correct me if I'm wrong though cos I'm only assuming that's what he meant cos Ramadan means no water during fasting hours also... I understand the religious side, but it's not too good when in training to not drink water...Originally Posted by niZmo

zubda345 you probably know that you should be drinking at least a litre of water per 25kg body weight, & an additional litre for every hour of exercise... Do you drink anything during your workouts?

For the record, I hate assumptions so I'm hoping I will be corrected if I'm wrong about the water & Ramadan thing... It's all learning...Originally Posted by BLaQz

So you workout once you break your fast, not during the fast? Also are u still getting bloated?Originally Posted by zubda345

What I had to break the Fast: Mango milkshake, some chicken, a lil fruits and about a liter of water...
I ate in large quantity, my belly was all bloated and it still feels like it's commin out... ana I gotta eat again, It's only 40 mins in the next fast....
Romanian deads: 70kgx8 + 80kgx7+7
Straight leg calves press: 1st set with 7 plates for 40 reps. 2nd set with 6 plates for 40 reps. (this kicked ass! I was doing a controlled movement in a constant was without stoping at any position, it was like a 1010 tempo)
Bend knees calves press: 1st set with 5plates for 15 reps, 2nd with 6 plates for 15 reps. (3131 tempo... about at the end of both calves exercises my calves were just bouncing and were sore...)
Lying leg raises: 3 sets for 20 reps each
Lying side crunches: 2 sets for 20 reps each (was to do 3 but didn't cause I had to head home)

The lack of water may not be helping, because I was quite surprised to find that when bloated, drinking plenty of water helps it pass... Try baking soda, lemon juice & warm water when bloated also, that combo helps... It not as good as plenty of water, but it should, & I hope it helps u cos bloating ****ing sucks when trying get on with your day/night...Originally Posted by zubda345
Couple pitches baking soda, juice of half lemon in about 200ml warm water...
Also try to drink before & after meals, not during, once again to avoid bloating...

I'll definitely look into it for taste(especially if it's rose syrup based), general health & the sugary calories thats in the syrup itself... Cheers...Originally Posted by zubda345
