The objective of this study is to analyse the effects of a session of resistance training on body checking in male adults. Participants included 50 volunteers aged between 18 and 30 years. A single session of resistance training was performed, and we used hypertrophy as our training method. Body checking behaviors were assessed using the Male Body Checking Questionnaire (MBCQ). Participants answered the MBCQ before (T1), immediately after (T2), and 24 h (T3), 48 h (T4) and 72 h (T5) after the

However, statistically significant differences were found for the subscales "use of reflective surface" (p=0.03), "check by clamping" (p=0.04) and "evaluation by others" (p=0.02). We concluded that a single session of resistance training was able to positively change some body checking behaviors of male adults.
