The Ramadan workout tips and tricks:

1. After you’ve completed your workout, make sure you stretch. All of your muscles have been contracted from the workouts and they need to be stretched back out and rebuilt

2. For either the body weight squats or lunges, if you can’t do them properly yet, it’s okay to put your hands on a support to keep your balance.

3. For the body weight squats, think of it like you're sitting back into a chair. If you can sit down onto a chair, and then stand immediately right back up without having to lean forward, you are in balance.
