Introduction: Research has shown that athletes' athletic performance depends on their ability to maintain and produce high energy efficiency per unit time; Therefore, the aim of this study was to compare the effect of 8 weeks of resistance training with ginseng supplementation on body composition, muscle strength and oxidative stress in male athletes.
Methods: The present study is a quasi-experimental study with pre-test and post-test design. The statistical population includes athletes aged 20 to 25 who referred to Tavan Sports Club in Gorgan in 2020. Purposeful sampling method and based on the inclusion and exclusion criteria of the study, 30 eligible people were randomly identified and randomly assigned to 2 groups of 15 people. The research instruments included a body composition device. In this study, SPSS software version 25 was used to analyze the data as well as one-way analysis of variance.
Results: The results showed that there was no significant difference between the post-test means of all variables in the two groups (P ≤ 0.001). Also, resistance training alone and with the use of ginseng supplement on all variables except the waist to hip ratio of resistance training + ginseng group is significant and is statistically significant (P ≤ 0.001).
Conclusion: It seems that the use of ginseng supplement along with resistance training compared to resistance training alone does not have a double effect on research variables.
