The objective of the study was: (i) identification of pre-start and start stress with junior judo competitors, (ii) analysis of relationship between the hormonal status and the results. The objectives were attained by measurements in 7 judo competitors of cortisol (C) and testosterone (T) concentration in capillary blood taken in the morning on several dates: under neutral conditions (NC), 21 days before the Junior Judo European Championship (-21D), 4 days before the competition (-4D), on the…

The alteration of the urinary steroid profile under the stress
TLDR
The results of the experiment have shown that psychological stress may cause significant changes in the steroid profile, especially in females, and that major fluctuations of T/Et and A/E ratios under the influence of stressogenic factors and physical activity are unlikely.
The effect of diet components on the level of cortisol
TLDR
Current knowledge on the effect of dietary components on level of cortisol is reviewed, which shows that diet supplementation is currently extensively used by both healthy and unwell people, in different age, but most commonly refers to physically active people.
Stress and anxiety disorders – prognostic significance of various biochemical indicators in combat sports athletes
Anxiety and stress are surprisingly common, both in the context of general population, and in relation to elite athletes, especially in combat sports. The aim of this review paper is the usefulness
Relationship between pregame concentrations of free testosterone and outcome in rugby union.
TLDR
The link between pregame T:C and rugby players in the back position suggests that monitoring weekly training loads and enhancing recovery modalities between games may also assist with favorable performance and outcome in rugby union matches.

Effect of competition stress on tests used to assess testosterone administration in athletes.
TLDR
The results indicate that the psychological stress associated with competition increases the production of steroid hormones (testosterone, cortisol), and that this phenomenon is more pronounced in older athletes than in younger athletes.
The stress of competition dissociates neural and cortisol homeostasis in elite athletes.
TLDR
Results would indicate a dissociation of the neural and hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis functioning in response to the stress of competition in elite athletes, and the considerable extent to which competition may alter selectively the physiology of stress-related hormones while sparing autonomic cardiac regulation.
Psychophysiological stress in judo athletes during competitions.
TLDR
Salivary cortisol may provide a better sensitive index of physiological stress than testosterone concentrations and positive relationships between anxiety components (somatic and cognitive anxiety) and cortisol were noted in both competitions.

Trait anxiety, submaximal physical exercise and blood androgens
TLDR
The results suggest that trait anxiety level may constitute an important factor that affects both pre-exercise and exercise serum androgen concentrations in untrained subjects.

TLDR
The significantly higher lactate, glucose, and alanine levels during the fight for the national championship, presumably induced by the additional stimulation of the anaerobic muscular and hepatic glycogenolysis as well as muscular glycolysis, may be accounted to the fortified EPI secretion caused by emotional strain.
