5 Recommended Exercises to Do during Fasting

30 March 2022 11:08 WIB

TEMPO.CO, JakartaRamadan is just around the corner. Though food intake is reduced during fasting, doing exercise remains necessary. As quoted from Healthline, exercising while fasting affects muscle biochemistry and metabolism. This is linked to insulin sensitivity and the steady management of blood sugar levels.

Exercising while fasting burns stored carbohydrates or known as glycogen. “[But] you’ll have less energy and not be able to work out as hard or perform as well,” says fitness programming and nutritionist Chelsea Amengual.

Citing Medical News Today, working out in a fasting state may cause dizziness due to lower blood sugar levels. That's why people are recommended to avoid energy-draining sports such as lifting weights, volleyball, and soccer during fasting and instead, stick to low-intensity workouts as follows:

  1. Cycling

Kutai Kartanegara Health Agency suggests cycling before breaking the fast for 45 minutes to burn calories and lose weight. Riding a bicycle burns about 300 calories in an hour.

  1. Jogging

Running at an easy pace in the afternoon before breaking the fast for 30 minutes burns as much as 210 calories. In order to prevent dehydration, set a relaxed running rhythm to keep the intensity light.

  1. Brisk walk

Brisk walking for 30 minutes will maintain the balance of the body while fasting.  

  1. Restorative yoga

Restorative yoga is practiced at a slow pace as it focuses on long holds, stillness, and deep breathing to keep the body fit. Besides, the workout does not require outdoor space.

  1. Pilates

Pilates is a low-intensity exercise that focuses on movements to strengthen the body. One hour of Pilates can burn 200 calories.
