    Just for what it's worth, in the real Arab world, where fresh hot and cold running water isn't that easy to come by at all, they use big four-cornered floor pots to burn incense, I forget the Arabic word for them just now, but the dudes stand next to them and fluff the hem out to get the incense smoke up under the gowns to hide body smell, I assume the women do pretty much the same.

    As I remember from years of taking aerobic classes, you need to take in deep breaths thru the nose and exhale thru the mouth before exercising, in order to oxygenate the muscles.

    Oh well! Continue on with whatever it was you were reading in here!
    Taking extra deep breaths before lifting barbells was part of what was taught in high school gym class, back when the cafeteria was serving the last of the dinoburgers.

    At least she's not hiding at home because she can't work out in public. Baby steps here. I'd rather see a Muslim woman wearing a burkini and swimming in the pool with her kids, than watching them from the sidelines in the Muslim version of street clothes (jeans, baggy modest tops and a hijab).
