Introduction: Coenzyme Q10 is one of the supplements recently available to athletes. Coenzyme Q10 is a fat-soluble vitamin – like substance with two benefits of taking Q10 supplements to reduce injuries and muscle fatigue. The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of Q10 supplementation on the aerobic power and anaerobic athlete and non-athlete male.
Methodology: Participants were 20 males with an average average age, height and weight, respectively (16/3 ± 0/8, 172 ± 6, 62/76 ± 7/55). Subjects were randomly selected and then classified into two equal groups of athletes (n = 10) and non-athletes (n = 10). The research project in this study was a pretest – post test design. The Bruce and Faulkner protocols were sports contracts. To prevent fatigue, the Faulkner protocol and then the Bruce protocol were implemented. In the pre – test section, Bruce and Faulkner protocols were used to assess the base level of aerobic power and anaerobic power. After 14 days of supplementation, both groups performed the Bruce protocol and Faulkner again (post-test). To For analysis of data From Repeated measures analysis of variance (P ≤ 0/05) was used.
Results: 14-day Q10 coenzyme supplement resulted in a significant increase in anaerobic power both groups of athletes (p = 0/004) and non-athletes (p = 0/037), But there was no significant effect on aerobic power in both groups (p > 0/05).
Discussion: With caution, it is suggested that the supplement may be a factor to increase anaerobic power, especially in sports that involve short-term activities are used.
