Abstract

Objectives: To examine correlative associations between salivary free testosterone (T) and cortisol (C) concentrations and training motivation in elite male athletes. Design: Single group, longitudinal design with repeated measures. Methods: Participants (n=15) completed a 5-week progressive resistance training programme. Across 2 weekly workouts, pre and post measures of salivary free T and C concentrations were taken along with voluntary chosen workload, as a proxy for training motivation. Strength and body mass were assessed pre and post training. Results: Individual changes in pre-workout free T concentrations correlated strongly to voluntary workloads (pooled r=0.81, p
