The study analyzes benefits of athletes’ metaboliс, functional, psycho-physiological and regulatory indices in pre-season in the modern Thai boxing, with application of a computerized NTK Computer Test System (Kiev). The tests were designed to obtain the anaerobic threshold HR (HRat) and maximal oxygen consumption (HRmoc) data in the functionality rating tests; stress tolerance and nervous system sensitivity indices in the psycho-physiological domain; standard heart rate variability (HRV) in the active orthostatic tests; followed by autonomic regulation typing, integrated functional variation and adaptability rating tests by S.A. Dushanin. Subject to the tests was a 26-year-old Master of Sports in Martial Arts in pre-season prior to the Perm Territorial Championship. The tests were made during the day 3 hours after morning training sessions on a daily basis, for eight days prior to the competitions. The study data were indicative of the test indices being in correlation with the training and rehabilitation processes.

Keywords: functionality, metaboliс/ functional/ psycho-physiological/ regulatory indices, performance tests.
