Abstract

The purpose of the present study was to determine if the three-month training program applied to the elite wrestlers had any effects on some physical, physiological and biochemical parameters. 21 male elite freestyle wrestlers (mean +/- SD; age 19.5 +/- 2.7 years, height 172.6 +/- 7.6 cm, weight 80.6 +/- 16.5 kg), volunteered in the present study. The subjects were applied in the three-month training program which was planned according to double-ended training periodisation. At the beginning and end of the program, the subjects were administered the body composition measurement, vertical jump test, handgrip strength test and biochemical analysis (RBC, HCT, Hb and blood glucose). At the beginning and end of the training program was determined respectively that the subjects average vertical jumps were 39.8 +/- 1 4.3 cm and 42.1 +/- 3.9 cm, right paw strengths 49.8 +/- 7.9 and 53.5 +/- 8.1 kg (p<0.05), left paw strengths 46.3 +/- 7.5 and 51.1 +/- 7.4 kg, RBC 4.41 +/- 0.01 (x10(12)/1) and 4.57 +/- 0.02 (x10(12)/1), HCT between 0.369 +/- 0.001 and 0.401 +/- 0.002 (1/1), Hb 132.1 +/- 0.35 and 135.5 +/- 0.52 g/l, blood glucose resting 97 +/- 5.11 and 88 +/- 4.45 mg/cm(3) (p<0.05).
