Department of Endocrinology, St Bartholomews Hospital, London E C l A 7BE (Received 8 September 1986; returned for revision 7 November 1986;$naIIy revised 3 December 1986; accepted 9 December 1986) INTRODUCTION Acute exercise is a potent modulator of the release of a large number of hormones and has therefore been widely studied as a stimulus to hormonal secretion since the earliest days of radioimmunoassay. It is, however, a very varied and complex physiological stimulus and as a result the hormonal changes may vary widely depending on the precise experimental circumstances. Chronic exercise training may modulate the pattern of basal hormone secretion, as well as modifying the normal acute responses to exercise. With the increasing popularity of exercise training for the maintainence of good health and even the treatment of existing diseases, these hormonal changes have achieved increasing relevance in endocrinological practice. The purpose of this article is therefore to review the literature on the hormonal responses to acute and chronic exercise, to assess the significance of reported changes with training and to consider the role of opioid peptides in the bodyâs adaptation to exercise training.
