    Training and Fasting


    Hey guys, I am going to start a thread here... I will be posting my training and eating as I am fasting and striving to grow... I lost alot of strength past couple of months when I left the gym and the last two months I started HIIT which was good also caused me strength loss... but anyways.

    3rd fast day today

    Here's whaT I had to break my fast:
    mixed fruit salad, beef paties, veggie roll, fries, samosas (traditional food, basically it's filled with potatoes and spices), milk with added syrup, peaches, and some cucumbers... I was full at the end... I know it's not much protein thou, But I am working on it, I'll eat some meat or eggs too tomorrow.

    about 1.5 hour later I went to the gym

    GYM - Gym was great today, had awesome pumps, I have lost strength thou...
    Incline barbell presses: 20kgx8, 30kgx8, 40kgx8
    Flat dumbbell presses: 24kg dumbbell pair for 8 reps. 30kgx8+8. I could have tried the 36kg dumbbells for the last set but some bitch ass was doing one of the most pethetic exercise ever and was not giving me the dumbbell. so I just did what I had to do.

    Pumps were good.

    After the gym I was still not feeling the need to eat, my stomach couldn't take more eating at that time... I thought of eating like half an hur later but that plan got ruined, so after like an hour and half I ate:
    one side of rosted chicken breast. glass of milk. veggie roll. some fries, a peanut butter sandwich and salad.

    I'd also recommend taking this down as well, works for me:
    2 scoops casein, cup of oatmeal, 3 cups of milk, throw in some fruit if you want...blend the **** out of it, and enjoy.

    Can't do that man, Fasting this month is a religious thing and I thought it'll be a good advantage to bodybuilding too. Fast breaks at sunset. and If I train fasted I will need to drink alot of water which I can't actually and neighter will I be able to take aminos...

    Im just trying to maintain currently and it's about 90-100 f here. I cut my workouts short to about an hr that way I don't burn as much energy. I'm following 5/3/1 and just focusing on the compound lifts and not so much on accessory. Ramadan is only 28 days this year so it's not too bad.

    ok I see. Ramadan is never bad if a person CAN work it out.

    There was no electricity from yesterday night, it just got resumed now.

    I need to sleep. Haven't sleept till now.

    I will post up the workout and eating stats asap.

    To be honest with you brother, I am also not a good muslim, but I don't drink and do drugs, I just try to be the best that I can be every moment. and you just have to try... Try it once... and you'll know for yourself...

    This is a bodybuilding forum and we are not allowed to discuss anything else than the stuff related to bodybuilding, but if u still wanna discuss it, you can PM me.

    Yesterday

    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.

    GYM
    Deadlifts: 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...

    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!

    Hey where are you from man? and I wish I could get rice and baked chicken everytime for iftar and dinner...

    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.

    Today


    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.


    GYM


    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...

    I live in Florida. It was a little tough at first, getting used to weights after time off, dietary changes, and being later at night. I went lighter and focused more on the eccentric part of lifts with shorter breaks. Felt better as time went on, pumps were pretty good! I did chest tonight in about 30 minutes. I'm curious how I'll feel tomorrow. How is soreness for you?

I'm curious how I'll feel tomorrow. How is soreness for you?
    good man. Let me know how ur chest workout went.

    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...
