so how would one minimise cortisol after training before breaking the fast.
assume: training at 7am, finish by 8:30am (5x5 and then cardio)
break fast, 1-8pm...
thoughts if "CORTISOL" is what we are trying to reduce especially for abs...::: Olympus Labs Athlete & Representative :::...Crossfit - DEMIGOD -

and I break the fast AT sunset that is like 6:58pm (which was today) so I guess yeah, it's only the daylight hours!
I usually start to eat at 3:20am or some time like that, but if I am hungry before that I might also eat at that time...

I am soo soo damn pissed off! I am all angry at my family members! They won't give me money, won't buy me a bike! and when it's my time to go to the gym it's either they give me some work to do or they need the bike and it's unavailable and I can't go to the gym! it's happens ALOT! I can't go to the gym WHEN I want to often! Now today my father took the bike and returned home at 10:30pm when the gym is closed!
I really badly wanted to train today! I got in me proteins to break the fast and I was ready to hit it hard today!
****IN UNPLANNED OFF DAY!!

Why don't you try the warrior diet? It would fit into you Ramadan fasting. It's 20hrs straight fasting with a four hour feeding window. That way your not breaking your fast in the morning. muscle catabolism will not occur until over 36 hours from memory.Originally Posted by zubda345

Just because it's a small feeding window doesn't mean you eat any less food. You just have a lot of food in 1 - 2 big meals. One of the major benefits of fasting is it's effect on HGH. Fasting long periods can increase HGH by up to 200%.Originally Posted by yazan

So are you managing with getting your calories in now? I'm still struggling with that, but my workouts are going great...Originally Posted by zubda345
My arms have gained & my chest measurement is down only due to fat loss though, so it's a good thing... Got to get all my measurements done... I'm just to lazy... I do girth measurements too often on other people... I prefer the mirror & measuring my performance...

Remember if your going to be fasting you should fast the same time every day so your body can become accustomed to when it's time to eat. Since you've only been fasting daylight hours but you've been eating after sunset and before sun up your not really fasting the full 16 hrs or so. Make sure you actually fast the whole time straight so you get the maximum benefitsOriginally Posted by zubda345
