CORRELATION BETWEEN THE PERSON’S PSYCHOLOGICAL FEATURES AND HYPERKINESIA HORMONAL SHIFTS

Abstract:

The purpose of this research was to study the correlation between the person’s psychological features and the level of hormones in athletes’ (exercising mostly in aerobic or anaerobic energy expenditure modes) blood serum. Athletes who exercised in different energy expenditure modes demonstrated different levels of unproductive neuropsychic stress: athletes exercising mostly in aerobic mode had low and medium levels of unproductive neuropsychic stress, those exercising mostly in anaerobic mode had medium and high stress levels in the majority of cases. Athletes with different levels of unproductive neuropsychic stress had significant differences in insulin, somatotropin, adrenocorticotropic hormone in their blood serum when having a physiological rest and after graded cycloergometric loads. The revealed shifts reflect peculiarities of recovery processes after muscle activity and indicate a great impact of a neuropsychic stress level on the organism’s adaptation to hyperkinesia
