Background A commonly used method to investigate endurance capacity is measurement of the maximal oxygen uptake by spiroergometry. Objectives The objective of the study was to investigate the effect of a combined training program on endurance capacity as assessed by VO2max and on serum cardiac troponin T (cTnT) in male volleyball players. Methods This study was conducted on 30 apparently healthy male volleyball players at the beginning of the training cycle. After routine history taking and a general examination, VO2max was calculated by ergospirometry, and serum cTnT was measured. A combined training program was designed for 12 weeks after which measurement of VO2max and serum cTnT was repeated. Results We found that a combined training program leads to significant increase in maximal oxygen consumption (VO2max), but we did not find significant effect of the training program on serum cTnT. Conclusion We concluded that VO2max increases in response to a combined training program and that serum cTnT does not increase in response to the same training when measured before and after a designed training program.
