The issues of adaptation of the gastric glands to thermal load (steam bath) of athlete-fighters. The differences in adaptation to thermal load of gastric glands in connection with a weight category, seniority and age of athletes.

The stability of steam bath of gastric glands in the middle weight class athlete-fighters combined with the preservation of endocrine homeostasis. The high sensitivity of athlete-fighters of light and middleweight category combined with an authentic increase in serum of blood the concentrations of gastric and aldosterone, and with decrease the concentrations of cortisol.
