Methods The study population consisted of all elite male shooters from Kohgiluyeh and Boyerahmad Province of Iran. Of these, 20 subjects were selected as study samples and underwent shooting with two different postural forms (prolonged and intermittent standing) before and
... anding) before and after resistance training. The resistance training protocol included 5 different movements performed slowly in the morning. Movements started in 3 sets of 10 repetitions with 1-min rest interval in the first session and ended with 5 sets of 14 repetitions with 1-min interval in the last session. It lasted for 8 weeks, 3 sessions per week. For data analysis, repeated mesures Analysis of Variance (ANOVA) and Perason correlation test were used and performed in SPSS V. 20 software. Results After eight weeks of resistance training, the posttest shooting accuracy and muscle fatigue were significantly different compared to the pre-test scores in different postural forms (P=0.05). There was a high correlation between changes in muscle fatigue and shooting accuracy in both prolonged and intermittent standing positions (P=0.05). Conclusion Eight weeks of resistance training had positive effect on muscle fatigue and shooting accuracy of shooters in two forms of standing positions.
