AIM: The aim of this study was to evaluate the concentrations of leptin, adiponectin and resistin associated with body composition and training indicators, in women volleyball athletes following a training periodization.
METHODS: Leptin, adiponectin and resistin were quantified in four moments of training periodization: beginning of the preparatory period and end of the preparatory period (M1), beginning of the pre-competitive period and end of the pre competitive period (M2), beginning of the competitive I period and ending of competitive I period (M3) and beginning of the competitive II period and end of competitive II period (M4). Training control indicators (perceived intensity and volume (VT), average week load (AWL), total week load (TWL), initial perceived exertion (IPE), final perceived exertion (FPE), were analyzed for correlation with adipokines. Body composition, fat percentage, absolute body fat and lean mass were also calculated.
RESULTS: No significant alterations were observed neither in leptin, adiponectin and resistin. Also, no correlation between training control indicators and adipokines were established. Additionally, no alterations occurred in body composition.
CONCLUSION: In summary, the present study did not report any alterations in adipokines, neither in the correlation with training indicators and body composition.
