Cytokine and hormone concentrations can be linked to the manipulation of training variables and to subsequent alterations in performance. SUBJECTS: Nine D-1 collegiate throwers and 4 control subjects participated in this preliminary and exploratory report. METHODS: Hormone (testosterone (T) and cortisol (C)) and adipokine (adiponectin, leptin, and resistin) measurements were taken at weeks 1, 7, and 11 for the throwers and weeks 1 and 11 for the control group. The throwers participated in an 11-week periodized resistance training and throws program during the fall preparatory period. Volume load was recorded throughout the study. RESULTS: Hormone values did not exhibit statistically signific..View full abstract
