Abstract :

The effect of training on the serum creatine kinase levels of athletes was evaluated clinically. Study was conducted in 46 highly-trained athletes. The collective results indicate that training has effect on the serum creatine kinase. The study showed that there was significant difference (P=0.002) between the serum creatine kinase (CK) values of pre-training and post-training values for the study groups and their controls. The study showed that serum CK is a marker for skeletal and myocardial muscle damage. Muscle damage reduces performance in endurance activities.
