ABSTRACT
This study approaches the adaptive changes of the human body in the specific rugby game effort. The main subjects are the players from the forward compartment. We have performed functional and anthropometric measurements of the players and recorded the conditions of specific adaptation in the typical rugby game effort. Measurements were conducted in two rounds, in pre-season and post season, as distinct periods from the physiologically point of view. As main conclusions, we noted, that the players are adapting to a specific effort level, depending on the position held in the team. This phenomenon is not obvious among the junior or amateur rugby players. It is also shown that exercise training increases the ventilation capacity, oxygen income, cardiac output, cardiovascular hemodynamics and hormonal, metabolic and neurological functions.
