Article title

The impact of physical effort on cortisol level: a review of the latest report

Title variants
Languages of publication
The results of the current study demonstrate that exercise interferes with the hormonal balance system. The size and direction of these changes depend on the volume and intensity of a physical effort. Biochemical monitoring can support the process of training and gathered data can assist in countering the effects of overtraining. The article presents the latest reports on the character of the changes in cortisol influenced by various types of physical effort, the impact of the training units, time of their execution and the influence of the supply of carbohydrates on the level of this hormone in the body. This work also presents the advantages of saliva analysis, as a reliable material to measure the level of cortisol in athletes.
