Biological responses to overload training in endurance sports
An outstanding factor to emerge from this study was the difficulty associated with an objective diagnosis of overtraining and this is a possible reason why there have been new accounts of over training research in the literature. Expand
The Influence of Exercise-Induced Plasma Volume Changes on the Interpretation of Biochemical Parameters Used for Monitoring Exercise, Training and Sport
It would, therefore, seem important to consider the influence of plasma volume changes on plasma solutes routinely measured for research, and as markers of training adaptation, prior to arriving at conclusions and recommendations based purely on their measured plasma level. Expand
Depression of plasma glutamine concentration after exercise stress and its possible influence on the immune system
To determine whether plasma glutamine levels can be used as an indicator of exercise‐induced stress, and to consider the possible effects of low plasma glutamine concentrations on the immune system.
The Emerging Role of Glutamine as an Indicator of Exercise Stress and Overtraining
If methodological issues are carefully considered, plasma glutamine level may be useful as an indicator of an overtrained state, particularly with regard to the gut and the cells of the immune system, which may be adversely affected. Expand
Psychological and immunological correlates of acute overtraining.
Five men became acutely overtrained as indicated by significant reductions in running performance from day 1 to day 11, accompanied by severe fatigue, immune system deficits, mood disturbance, physical complaints, sleep difficulties, and reduced appetite. Expand
Influence of Exercise‐Induced Plasma Volume Changes on the Interpretation of Biochemical Data Following High‐Intensity Exercise
It is recommended, when sampling biochemical and hormonal parameters in blood following an acute bout of exercise, that corrections for PVCs should be conducted. Expand
The haematological, biochemical and immunological profile of athletes suffering from the overtraining syndrome
The data in this study would suggest that plasma glutamine concentrations represented an objective, measurable difference between OTS subjects and normal controls, but it remains to be shown that there is any correlation between glutamines concentrations and other clinical symptoms of OTS such as physical capability.

Periodisation and the prevention of overtraining.
A periodised training structure provides guidelines for conducting research into the mechanisms of training adaptation and overtraining. Expand
