Abstract

The aim of this study was to examine the blood biochemical changes that occur during high intensity handball training in elite handball players’ women (age 22±2.23 years). The training protocol was the same for all players. Blood samples were drawn 3-5 minutes before and 2 minutes after finishing the training session in order to determine lactic acid values (LA). After training the studied parameter increased significantly (p<0.001) in all teams. These results demonstrate that handball training is a highly aerobic with a considerable anaerobic component requiring high lactate tolerance. Training sessions should reflect these demands placed on players during competitive match-play.
