Profile Sporting (Base)
Regular sports have a positive body effect - they improve the work of the circulatory system and oxygenation of tissues, support muscle growth and the development of movements coordination, reduce stress and tension, have a good effect on the sleep quality, reduce the risk of civilization diseases (such as hypertension, diabetes , obesity) or chronic diseases (cancer, osteoporosis) developing.
However, in case of the incorrect type or amount of sports, it has a negative effect on the entire body functioning. Exercises that are too difficult can quickly cause exhaustion of the body. And a too intense pace of training, in the absence of a sufficiently long rest, leads to damage from training.
The causes of body discomfort during physical activity include an improperly balanced diet, excessive use of caffeine, and insufficient sleep. People who train intensively are also more likely to suffer from nutrient deficiencies (vitamins, micro- and macroelements), anemia, or hormonal disorders (the level of women estrogens, men androgens).
Regardless of whether you play sports as an amateur or professionally, you need to regularly and comprehensively monitor your body. Blood tests are one of the simplest, yet most important ways to track training progress and early detection and treatment of abnormalities that can lead to better performance, higher results and faster recovery.
The aim of the study
Measurements of indicators included in this research help to assess the state of the body comprehensively (in particular to rule out inflammation, water-electrolyte disorders or hypotrophy), check the efficiency of metabolic processes (carbohydrates, fats), iron reserves (ferritin), filtration function of the kidneys (creatinine).
Muscle damage can indicate high levels of creatine kinase and the hormone cortisol. An increased concentration of the latter also indicates that the body is exposed to excessive stress or overload, so the intervals between training sessions should be increased.
