Combined Effects of One Period Resistance Training and Nutritional Knowledge On Muscle Strength
The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of resistance training and nutritional knowledge on muscle strength and body composition indices of non-athletic female students. 32 non-athlete female students of Islamic Azad University of Rasht. The variables were re-measured after 8 weeks of resistance training. The Kolmogorov-Smirnov test was used to check the distribution of data. Furthermore, a correlated t-test was used to compare the variables in the pre-test and post-test (intra-group changes); ANOVA and Tukey post hoc tests were used to compare the changes between the groups. Data analysis was performed using SPSS software at a significant level of p≥0.05. The results of this study showed that muscle strength in training groups was significantly increased; this increase was higher in resistance training group with nutritional knowledge.
