    Well are you eating at night then sleeping and then eating in the morning?


  2. 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.

    Fasting for 16-20 hours has been shown to increase HGH levels in a man by nearly 2000%. Compound that with HIIT exercises and/or lifting and your body should be surging with anabolic hormones.
    Try fasting for 23 hours.. I been doing it for the past week. It's really not that bad with 10hr work days and goin straight to the gym after.. It's wen I'm sittin at home doin nothing wen hunger really kills me

  12. 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...

  16. 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...

    in usual days I do drink good amount of water but in ramadan it's like 2 liters and an additional 1 liter during and pre training per 24hours :/

    I think that's less

    Well, I still did my workout today... I was alot better at the time of training after like 2 hour of breaking the fast... At 1st I thought I might not go to the gym today but then again I rested and went and trained after wards.... I think I made the right call because tomorrow 14th august is the independence day and gym is gonna be closed, If I wouldn't have trained today it have made it 3 days off straight... yesterday was off, sunday, today ( if I didn't trained) and tomorrow also because of a national holiday...

    yes... Breaking the fast without any solid reason (like if someone has got a serious health issue then he can break his fast - mine was not that serious) it's a Sin having a fast and then breaking it just cause I am thristy or any **** like that...

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

  24. 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....

    GYM:
    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...)

    ABS
    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)
