We evaluated the special endurance (SE) of freestyle wrestlers with the help of complex tests of special working capacity, while simultaneously monitoring the change in levels of lactate concentration and LPO in the blood at the preparatory stage of the annual sport cycle. A total of 23 athletes with high sports qualification participated in the experiment. Athletes were tested in the field by "repeated marginal load" tests, including the operational test (OT) developed by the authors. The most noticeable shifts in the studied indicators were observed after the test load of OT, which indicates an increase in the glycolytic capacity of the athlete's body. Thus, our study shows the possibility of using our OT to analyze the anaerobic performance of elite athletes in freestyle wrestling.
