SummaryThe concentrations of serum testosterone, sex-hormone-binding-globulin (SHBG) and luteinizing hormone (LH) were examined throughout 1-year of training in six elite weightlifters. A systems model, providing an estimation of fatigue and fitness, was applied to records of training volume and performance levels in clean and jerk. The analysis focused on a 6-week training period during which blood samples were taken at 2-week intervals. A 4-week period of intensive training (period I) could… 
Hormonal responses to training and its tapering off in competitive swimmers: relationships with performance
TLDR
Results showed that the monitored plasma hormones and metabolic indices were unaltered by 12 weeks of intense training and 4 weeks of taper, and the TT: C and NSBT: C ratios appeared to be effective markers of the swimmers' performance capacities throughout the training season.
Response of selected hormonal markers during training cycles on indian female swimmers
TLDR
The study concludes that the intensity and volume of training has effects on these hormones and also, a swimmer with higher testosterone, lowest cortisol and highest T/C ratio has the highest percentage difference of performance record between the preparatory and competitive phase.
Hormonal Responses and Adaptations to Resistance Exercise and Training
TLDR
It appears that this acute response to resistance exercise is more critical to tissue growth and remodelling than chronic changes in resting hormonal concentrations, as many studies have not shown a significant change during resistance training despite increases in muscle strength and hypertrophy.
Resting Hormone Alterations and Injuries: Block vs. DUP Weight-Training among D-1 Track and Field Athletes
TLDR
Data indicate that a Block training model is more efficient in producing strength gains than a DUP model, and relationships between training variables and hormone concentrations including the T:C ratio indicate that Block may be more efficacious in terms of fatigue management.
The Endocrinology of Resistance Exercise and Training
TLDR
Modifications of training intensity, volume, muscle mass involvement, rest intervals, and frequency can impact the acute hormonal response to resistance exercise.
A Model for the Training Effects in Swimming Demonstrates a Strong Relationship between Parasympathetic Activity, Performance and Index of Fatigue
TLDR
A model was proposed where indices of fatigue were computed using Banister’s two antagonistic component model of fatigue and adaptation applied to both the ANS activity and the performance and demonstrated that a logarithmic relationship existed between performance and AnS activity for each subject.
Effects of training frequency on the dynamics of performance response to a single training bout.
TLDR
It was shown that shortening recovery time between training sessions progressively yielded a more persistent fatigue induced by each training, and the maximal gain in performance for a given training load decreased during HFT.
Dose-response modelling of total haemoglobin mass to hypoxic dose in elite speed skaters
TLDR
The model developed in the current study describes the time course of total haemoglobin mass during altitude exposure and post-altitude decline in elite speed skaters.
Carbohydrate supplementation and resistance training.
TLDR
It may be advisable for athletes who are performing high-volume resistance training to ingest carbohydrate supplements before, during, and immediately after resistance training.

Responses of serum androgenic-anabolic and catabolic hormones to prolonged strength training.
TLDR
The findings suggest that the turnover of endogenous androgens may increase during progressively intensified training without a change in serum total testosterone concentration and during the most stressful phases of training, the changes in serum androgen/cortisol ratios seem to be highly individual and may correlate with changes in muscular strength.
Relationships between training volume, physical performance capacity, and serum hormone concentrations during prolonged training in elite weight lifters.
TLDR
A follow-up study of 1 year was performed on 11 male elite weight lifters and found that individual changes during the stressful training in serum testosterone/SHBG ratio were related to the individual changes in the weight lifting result in the clean and jerk lift.
Serum hormones during prolonged training of neuromuscular performance
TLDR
The results suggest the importance of the balance between androgenic-anabolic activity and catabolizing effects of glucocorticoids during the course of vigorous strength training.
Daily hormonal and neuromuscular responses to intensive strength training in 1 week.
TLDR
During a short period of intense strength training the changes especially in serum testosterone concentrations indicate the magnitude of physiologic stress of training, but these changes do not, however, necessarily directly imply the changes in performance capacity.
Serum hormones and physical performance capacity in young boy athletes during a 1-year training period
TLDR
It was concluded that an increase in anabolic activity with the synchronous training already has positive effects on trainability and physical performance capacity at an early stage in puberty.
A systems model of training responses and its relationship to hormonal responses in elite weight-lifters
TLDR
The results suggest that (1) the relationships between training and performance can be described by the systems model, (2) the estimated index of fitness has a physiological meaning and the fatigue index remains to be clarified.
Effect of long-term physical training on plasma testosterone, androstenedione, luteinizing hormone and sex-hormone-binding globulin capacity.
The effect of 6-months' physical training on plasma testosterone, androstenedione and luteinizing hormone levels and the binding capacity of sex-hormone-binding globulin (SHBG capacity) were studied
Neuromuscular and hormonal adaptations in athletes to strength training in two years.
TLDR
The present results suggest that prolonged intensive strength training in elite athletes may influence the pituitary and possibly hypothalamic levels, lead to increased serum levels of testosterone, which may create more optimal conditions to utilize more intensive training leading to increased strength development.
Hypothalamic dysfunction in overtrained athletes.
TLDR
The impaired hormonal responses to insulin-induced hypoglycemia, with recovery after 4 weeks of rest, indicate hypothalamic dysfunction and may be a diagnostic marker of the overtraining syndrome.
Endurance Training and Testosterone Levels
TLDR
There are no findings to indicate that any consistent dysfunctions of any of the testosterone dependent processes in the male occur due to endurance training.
