    Well it is Lent and I know at least some of you are religious, right? If you do a traditional fast from sunrise to sunset, how do you handle training?

    Every denomination is different, but traditionally you're supposed to fast for 40 days from sunrise to sunset. It differs from Ramadan in that we're allowed to have water. Some allow bread as well.

    :h5:

    I'm going to eat more nasty food, drink more, look at more porn, and have as much sex as possible to make up for all you people giving up stuff.


    Ask Chech though, muslims fast during Ramadan and I believe he still trains.

    i was raised catholic and i've never heard of any of this. no meat of on friday and give up something you "crave."

    that being said religion is poison.

    eat and train how you will, but if you fast like that and train you will suck on the mat and be flat and small at the end of it.

    You know, I might even look at porn, while banging my girlfriend, WHILE eating some greasy food.

    And everyone knows mormons are right. Didn't you guys see that southpark?

    I was gonna say "me too," but I'm on a diet, don't care for alcohol, porn makes me uncomfortable, and I'm without a boyfriend...so. Well. I'll be blasphemous in spirit!

    We will watch porn until you are fine with it.

    I've got some quality stuff.

    And I'll ask my GF if I can bang you.

    That makes me a sad panda.

    Oh well, don't want to bang you anyway.

    You're fat and ugly.

    And not all that bright.

    i did ramadan recently and sunset was pretty late. Just bring a protein bar and banana to training and break your fast there. dont kill yourself until its time to drink. your body will actually adjust to this pretty well

    thanks..

    yeah.. its weird. even the least religious muslims end up doing ramadan. i guess because it makes you obviously UNreligious if youre eating or drinking when everybody isnt. All the muslims around you will be like :ugh: bigtime.

    praying five times a day and the other stuff is much less obvious.

    I respect that they physically can do it.

    I think its dumb that they do.

    I don't want to really insult anyone about their religious views though, I normally don't discuss it.

    But I'm as hardcore atheist as Chech is Muslim.
