ALTERAÇÕES SÉRICO-HORMONAIS DE JOGADORES JUNIOR DE BASQUETEBOL EM TREINAMENTO INTENSIVO

ALTERACIONES SERO-HORMONALES DE JUGADORES DE BALONCESTO JUNIOR EN ENTRENAMIENTO INTENSIVO

ABSTRACT

Introduction

Basketball is a long-duration, high-intensity ball game. High competition and athletic combat require athletes to perform at an excellent technical and tactical level. Therefore, studying physiological indicators related to serum-hormone levels of basketball players is an effective way to implement scientific physical monitoring of athletes.

Objective

This paper aims to understand the intense training effect on hormone-related physiological indicators in young basketball players.

Objective

This paper aims to understand the effect of intense training on physiological indicators related to serum-hormonal levels in young basketball players.

Methods

Serum hormone indices of 11 healthy young players without organic or genetic diseases were compared before, 2, 4, and 24 hours after an intense training protocol.

Results

Creatine and blood urea levels. After 24 hours, the levels were close to those found pre-workout.

Conclusion

Basketball training can improve the anaerobic capacity of young players. There is a high correlation between changes in serum hormones in young people and their physical fitness. Evidence Level II; Therapeutic Studies - Investigating the result.
