EP 20 - The Fitness Guide for Ramadan

For the month of Ramadan, that is when our Muslim brothers and sisters would fast  every day from dawn to sunset. Muslims do this both as a spiritual and a physical exercise, used to strengthen their own resolve and self-control. Refraining from food and drink strengthens our ability to empathize with those experiencing hunger and thirst as a daily reality.

Today's podcast, I speak with Kam Izzwan - asian powerlifting champion, former bodybuilder, coach, entrepreneur and co founder of Physique For You Gym on the Fitness Guide For Ramadan. 

For those embarking on a fitness journey, or for those who are already actively in one and you just so happen to be Muslim -  we touch on how you can still maintain your healthy lifestyle while fasting. I'll be asking him the following questions:
