During the holy month of Ramadan, the period of food and liquid intake depends on sunset and sunrise. Ramadan moves back in the calendar by about ten days a year. Thus, the probability that major sporting events being held during Ramadan is great. Developing practical and appropriate strategies to ensure competitiveness to athletes and players regarding health, psychological aspect and physical performance becomes a significant issue. The psychological aspect appearing through the motivation may constitute a very important measure helping to face stress and anxiety, induced by the sudden change of the way of life in Ramadan. Generally, during the second week, we may observe, on one hand, a progressive human adaptation of the young athletes and, on the other hand, a disturbance in the biological rhythm which leads to a level of tolerance to the temporary pain, thus to behavioural problems. In the present approach, we will deal with dialectics between physical and spiritual aspects of Ramadan related to the corporal and psychological preparation of young Algerian football players of ten 10clubs in the first professional league, so that to preserve performance and general health.
