One of the challenges confronting the coaches and sport scientist is to understand the physical factors contributing to successful performance. One the common methods to identify the appropriate training program for improving fitness level is the analysis of the effect of these practices on various factors of training exercises. The initial testing session at the start of a program can give the athletes and coach information of current functional capability and allow them to compare that capacity with reference values from appropriate peer group, so that future testing can be compared to this and any changes can be noted. Also the assessment of current status reveals the strengths and weaknesses of training program and become a basis for development of an optimal training program (Mirzaie et al., 2011a).The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of an eight-weeks general preparation exercise on some selected biomechanical, anthropometrical and physiological parameters of the Iranian national Females' Taekwondo team.
