Abstract

During the Islamic holy month of Ramadan, every able-bodied Muslims engage in the practice of fasting, including athletes. Muslims athletes have to compete and/or train during the Ramadan month. There are three considerations when training during the Ramadan period: possibly low levels of fuel (i.e. muscle glycogen stores) within the body, dehydration and feelings of lethargy during the daytime which are due to the acute lack of food and fluid intake as well as loss of sleep time, respectively. It has been argued that these three elements associated with fasting may have a negative impact on exercise or training quality during the Ramadan month. Pada bulan suci Islam Ramadan, setiap umat Islam yang sihat tubuh badan wajib berpuasa, termasuk atlit. Altlit beragama islam juga perlu terlibat dalam pertandingan dan / atau latihan pada bulan Ramadan. Terdapat tiga faktor yang perlu ditimbangkan apabila berlatih dalam bulan Ramadan kekurangan tenaga (glikogen simpanan dalam otot) di dalam badan, dehidrasi dan keletihan pada waktu siang yang disebabkan oleh kekurangan pemgambilan makanan dan cecair serta kekurangan masa tidur. Ketiga-tiga faktor yang dinyatakan di atas mempuyai kaitan dengan amalan berpuasa dan berkemungkinan menyebabkan kesan negatif terhadap individu/atlit ketika aktiviti senaman atau latihan pada bulan Ramadan.
