Martin, A. C, Heazlewood, I. T, Lys, I., Kitic, C. M & Johnson, L. (2015). Progesterone and estradiol levels predict planned agility, 10M and 20M sprint performance in young male Australian football athletes. Journal of Australian Strength and Conditioning,23(6), 43-46. Australia: Australian Strength and Conditioning Association.
The article presents a study which which evaluates the capacity of testosterone, cortisol, progesterone and estradiol levels in predicting countermovement jump agility in multi-level sprint and fitness test performance in young male Australian football athletes. It aims to understand the influence of steroid hormones on the physical performance in athletes. It suggests that combined testosterone, cortisol, estradiol and progesterone will be a stronger predictor of physical performance.
