In this study, the authors attempted to determine whether the dynamics of blood lactate and glucose in wrestling depend on the weight class. Blood lactate and glucose curves during and after a wrestling match were determined. We also explained the dynamics of blood lactate and glucose in the context of recent glucose and lactate metabolism research. A(More)
The aims of this paper were: a) to present weight reduction habits of adolescent wrestlers; b) to establish differences in mood states between weight groups; and c) to determine relations between weight loss and indicators of hydration with mood states. Adolescent wrestlers do resort to rapid weight loss (RWL) regimens in their training process and(More)

The study involved 40 young adults men (20,15±0,56 years) who were randomly divided into the two training groups: Billat 30s(More)
The possible role of S-100 brain specific proteins and their participation in the neuronal mechanisms of habituation were studied on identified neurons of the snail Helix pomatia. Extracellular application and intracellular injection of antibodies to S-100 proteins caused a rapid and significant decrease of neuronal responses to repeated stimulation in(More)
