INTRODUCTION: This study examined the effects of short-term physical training on the acute hormonal response (i.e. growth hormone [GH], total and free IGF-I, and IGFBP-1, -2, and -3) to resistance exercise (RE) in women. METHODS: Forty six women (20.3 ± 0.3 y, mass 64.1 ± 7.3 kg, height 165.7 ± 1.0 cm) were randomly assigned to an endurance training (E), resistance training (R), combined training (R+E), or control (C) group for 8 weeks. Subjects completed a standardized bout of resistance exercise (six sets of back squats at 10-RM) before and after training. Blood samples were obtained at rest (PRE), after the third set, immediately post-exercise (POST), and at 15 min and 30 min after exercise. RESULTS: Acute RE significantly increased (p < 0.05) serum GH (mean ± SD; change from PRE to POST; +10.9 ± 7.5 µg·l), total IGF-I (+66.1 ± 25.4 µg·l), IGFBP-1 (+2.5 ± 3.1 µg·l), IGFBP-2 (+86.0 ± 86.8 µg·l), and IGFBP-3 (+0.69 ± 0.25 mg·l) concentrations and decreased free IGF-I concentrations (-0.14 ± 0.21 µg·l). Following 8 weeks of training, total IGF-I concentrations were significantly increased (change in POST concentrations from week 0 to week 8: +82.5 ± 120.8 µg·l) and IGFBP-1 concentrations were significantly decreased (-6.7 ± 13.6 µg·l) during exercise in groups that participated in resistance training (R and R+E); no significant changes were seen following E or C. CONCLUSIONS: Participation in resistance training increased total IGF-I and reduced IGFBP-1 concentrations during acute resistance exercise, indicating exercise mode-specific adaptations in the circulating IGF-I system.
