An exploratory analysis of possible hormone predictors of physical performance in male and female adolescent basketball athletes
Martin, A., Heazlewood, I., Kitic, C. M, Lys, I. Y & Johnson, L. (2016). An exploratory analysis of possible hormone predictors of physical performance in male and female adolescent basketball athletes. 24(6), 1-1. Australia: Australian Strength and Conditioning Association.
Steroid hormones regulate physiological functions important to sports performance. There is some evidence of hormone-performance associations though further research is required. Studies investigating concurrent changes in performance and hormone levels in basketball athletes have not identified changes in hormone levels making it difficult to determine if hormone-performance associations exist in this group of athletes. Identification of hormone-performance associations in basketball athletes would provide valuable insights that may assist in the design of training programs and competition strategies.
