Exercise should be kept to a minimum during times of fasting. However, you can still actively assist your metabolism
1 Understand that fasting is a time for the body to repair itself internally, and that exercise can distract your body's attention from the inside to the outside.
2 During fasting your body lacks many of the nutrients and calories necessary for a workout to be beneficial to your body, and therefore exercise can be detrimental during a fast.
3 Avoid strenuous workouts during fasting. If you have a normal regimen you can't stand to quit for a few days, cut it down by more than half.
4 Do light, low-impact exercise: walking, gardening, or light work.
5 Do simple stretching exercises like pilates, yoga etc to help balance and stimulate your inner organs.
6 Stretch and breathe. Do not underestimate the healing power of deep, conscious breathing.
7 Develop and maintain a regular exercise schedule after completing your fast. Exercise is essential to proper nutrient absorption and triggers endorphins that help you feel good.
