Introduction: The Whole Body Vibration Therapy (WBVT) is a new exercise technology dramatically used in sporting areas
and at homes due to the small places occupy and it is easy to use. The literature has shown various effects of this system on the
strength, endurance, balance and recently on the endocrine hormones including testosterone, cortisol, growth hormone levels
etc. The current study aimed to study the combination effects of the resistive exercise and the WBVT with lateral translation on
the level of the testosterone and cortisol in blood serum of young men. This study also aims to help finding a simple and useful
method for home exercise to keep well-being and for professionals for helping their championship desire.
Materials & Methods: Thirty young males playing football in the league one in Tehran were recruited in this semi-experimental
study and were randomly allocated in one of the three WBVT, resistive exercise and the combination of the WBVT and resistive
exercise groups. The subjects exercise done day apart for nine sessions. The WBVT was carried out in 50 Hz frequency with the
lateral displacement of 4 mm. The blood samples of the subjects were taken before and immediately after the test.
Results: The results of this study showed that the combination of the WBVT and resistive exercise significantly increased the
level of testosterone and decreased the cortisol level and hence could significantly increase the testosterone/cortisol ration.
Conclusion: The increased level of the testosterone to cortisol in blood serum following the combined WBVT and resistive
exercise revealed the anabolic nature of these exercises which could help athletes and also the normal people.
