In this work the authors do not use any special physiological parameters for the definition of the biological age, and offer a special approach - a chronobiological one. This approach increases many times more the informativeness of already existing physiological parameters which are used as tests for the estimation of the biological age. So, applying the chronobiological approach, the authors receive not only a daily average level but also an amplitude, an acrofaze, a chronodezm, a parameter of daily adaptibility. The structure of the biorhythms is the sensitive indicator of a functional condition of an organism, one of the major criteria of the physiological adaptation of a person. Thus the amplitude of circadian rhythm has the greatest meaning among all the parameters of the biorhythm for the estimation of the level of adaptable opportunities of an organism and the biological age.It is possible to judge the functionalities of an athlete, to determine the peak of his (her) sports form according to the value of amplitudes or on their changes.
