CYCLING IN RAMADAN

Many people are hesitant about the idea of working out during Ramadan, but did you know that fasting consecutively for 30 days without any form of exercise could lead to a decrease in strength and fitness level?

 

But hey, cycling is a great way to keep fit during the holy month. With some planning and adjustment here and there, and a hint of tips from us, you’ll have a healthy fasting month!

1. Train smarter not harder

Do not intensify or upgrade your routine. Realistically speaking, this is not the time to smash your Strava record, pedal faster than your usual speed, nor go that extra 10 miles. Pick your distance and your speed! It could be a gentle ride around the park before dinner or sunrise. Hydration is key and if it gets too hot, pour some cold water over your head to bring your temperature down.

 

2. Ride when it feels best
According to fitness experts, the ideal time to train is 90 minutes before sunset. This time is ideal, as you will be breaking fast soon. However, stop training if you feel dizzy or nauseous. If you feel drained cycling after a long day of fasting, adjust your training session to be in the morning.

 

3. Moderation

We love our Ramadan bazaar, scrumptious buffet spread, and homemade kuih…. It is tough to not overeat when you are hungry. You don’t have to be a party pooper, just remember to eat moderately, chew well, and keep an eye on the calories as you feast.

Yes, it might be physically taxing but we’re in this with you. Watch this space as we will post more tips throughout the fasting month!
