The purpose of the present study was investigation of effects of upper-body, lower-body and concurrent resistance trainings on non-enzymatic antioxidants in untrained women. Fifty-six healthy volunteer women with averages age of 18-23 year old, weight of 55-65 kg and BMI of 18-25 (kg/m2) were purposefully selected, as an in access manner. They were divided to four groups of upper-body resistance trainings (14 persons), lower-body resistance trainings (14 persons), concurrent resistance trainings (14 persons) and control (14 persons), randomly. Each of the three training groups had a trainings schedule, involved three 1 hr. weekly sessions during eight weeks. Exercise activities started with intensity of 50% 1RM training on each exercise equipment, and 5% barbell weight with new 1RM was added, at the moments of after each two weeks. Blood samplings were executed, at three stages of the moments of before the trainings beginning, four weeks after trainings beginning and eight weeks after trainings beginning. Total antioxidant capacity (TAC) and malondialdehyde (MDA) were measured for each sample. Factor analysis of variance (FANOVA) with repeated measures was applied to investigate changes of variables. None of the under study variables showed any significant variation (P was 0.89 and 0.23 for MDA and TAC, respectively). Perhaps, resistance trainings do not generate any significant change in non-enzymatic antioxidant among untrained women, because of possessing the retrieval period. This issue might relate to nonbeing significance change of oxidant that of course should be surveyed in future studies.
