| This summer, Ramadan made it hard on sportsmen and trainers - Sep.23, 2010 (by *AddMe)|

This year, just like every Ramadan, Lebanese athletes were due to combine religious convictions with sports. This years sacred month in Islam, during which the believers should fast from sunrise to sunset, came in a critical training period for the Lebanese sports clubs. To what extent does fasting curb the physical activity ? Does it cause risks for sportsmen? Which attitude should they adopt during such a particular period in order to keep on practicing while respecting their faith? Here are some testimonials and advice.
Ramadan is the ninth month of the lunar calendar adopted by Islam. According to the Muslim religion, the Prophet Muhammad had a vision from the angel Gabriel during this month in the year 610 (on the 27th day). The latter announced to Muhammad that God had chosen him as his Messenger among people. Therefore, Ramadan, which is one of the five pillars of Islam, is a sacred month during which Allah started to reveal his beliefs to Muhammad. During these thirty days, millions of believers throughout the world deprive themselves from eating and drinking, from sunrise to sunset.
This sacred month has put Muslim sportsmen in Lebanon in a harsh situation, as it started in September, few weeks before the resumption of the football and basketball seasons. The Lebanese clubs, which were in full preparations during this period, were due to play many games and participate in numerous friendly tournaments this month: a physical effort which could be a source of risk for athletes during fasting. Therefore, sportsmen in Lebanon wondered a lot: were they able to continue their physical activities during Ramadan?
We used to train after the Iftar (breaking the fast every night during Ramadan ed), said Ghaleb Reda, a Lebanese international basketball player. However, it is true that training or playing a game without eating or drinking, force the sportsmen to use the energy already stocked in their bodies and lead to a lot of exhaustion.
After around 14 hours of deprivation, fasting complicates the task of the organisms and, therefore, heavies the burden on the performance of Muslim sportsmen. According to the Lebanese technician in the Beirut Nejmeh team, Emil Rustom, the athletes should combine deprivation and sports during Ramadan.
Players should have a perfect knowledge of themselves in a way that their performance does not decrease much during the month of Ramadan, he added. As for Rizkallah Zaloum, this month is a delicate period of the year: as a coach, I recommended that our trainings take place after the Iftar. And this is what we did. Even when we had to play a game, we used to play at night. However, it is true that the players couldnt show their whole talent, mainly because of weariness.
Dr. Riad Salims advice
'Sportsmen should do their best not to exhaust themselves during the day and not to make violent efforts during the training sessions and the games scheduled before the Iftar, advised Riad Salim, the Lebanese sports doctor. Sportsmen should walk for an hour before eating; this allows a better blood circulation. I also advised the sportsmen, during the Iftar, to drink one warm glass of water, but I strongly warned them against engorging cold water as it causes terrible stomachaches. I also recommended that the sportsmen maintain a balanced diet.
Therefore, beware, during the Iftar, not to give in to the numerous sweets that are often on the tables! As for trainers, I warned them against the overactivity of their players. I recommended the decrease of the training time to 50 minutes or to a maximum of one hour, which means three sessions per week. Longer training in a potentially blistering heat could have lead to severe consequences on the hearts of our players.
Abroad, doctors and trainers were sometimes obliged to mingle Ramadan with sports. Christophe Baudot, who was the doctor of the French football club of the Marseille Olympics one year ago, explained that during the heat period, there is always a risk of dehydration, which leads to a lower performance; we also adapted training sessions in agreement with the coach. But when sportsmen are well hydrated and their alimentation is adequate [outside fasting period], there is no problem.
The dangers of fasting for a sportsman
For sportsmen, food and drink deprivation is not safe. In fact, doing sports without eating and drinking, especially in a hot weather (which could possibly happen in September in Lebanon), can decrease the muscular strength leading to a hypoglycemia. There are many symptoms for this condition: shaking, vertigo, balance disorders, nausea, vomiting, headache or even vigilance disorders. In some extreme cases, hypoglycemia could provoke coma, or even lead to death. Hypoglycemia could only be prevented by the means of complex sugars. Sportsmen should eat 3 hours before practicing any physical or sports activity.
Yet, this is incompatible with the rules of Ramadan. Another danger that is also due to heat: the heat stroke and the collapse from dehydration, with a possible stroke, heart attack or sudden death, because of the lack of food, the absence of fluids, and the excessive temperature of the sportsmans environment.
The sportsman can also be subject to an accident in his tendino-muscular unit due to inefficient alimentation and insufficient hydric supply, which can lead to traumatic accidents such as tendonitis, tears, muscle strain, due to muscular weakness.
A more rare case: the biological disturbance. The association of a physical activity with an inefficient alimentation leads to a metabolic disorder which could result in a blood waste increase, a blood sugar modification (hyperglycemia), and a alteration in the hepatorenal mechanism.
Finally, the decrease in the physical condition is the most visible effect when the sportsman does not eat properly. This is mainly witnessed during the first two weeks of Ramadan. Therefore, to practice sports safely, there is nothing like a specialists advice!
