Methodology: 18 women with polycystic ovary syndrome aged 18 to 30 years (BMI1≥25) were randomly divided in to Atotal of experimental groups (n = 9) and control (n = 9) groups. To evaluate the morphology of the ovaries as well as blood, samples after 12 hours of overnight fasting before exercise and 48 hours after the last training session are taken. Afterwards exercise group participated in an 8-weeks resistance training program. Results: The results showed that resistance exercise good effect in reducing fasting plasma glucose (P=0/014), insulin (P=0/001) and insulin resistance index (HOMA-IR) (P=0/001) and this practice is improvedthe right ovary volume (P=0/001) and left ovary volume (P=0/001). Also showed that 8 weeks of resistance training resulted in improved body composition indices including weight (P=0/001), WHR2 (P=0/001), BMI (P=0/347) and body fat (P=0/010) in women with polycystic ovary syndrome.
