Background and aims: Coenzyme Q10 is a fat-soluble vitamin-like substance that carries electrons in the mitochondria. It plays an important role in anti-oxidant activities and energy production. The aim of this study was to compare the effects of coenzyme Q10 supplementation on aerobic capacity, anaerobic and some selected indicators on Muscle soreness in athletes and non-athletes boys.

Methods: This quasi- experimental research was conducted on 20 male students of 60 volunteers with an average age, height and weight, respectively (16.30±0.8 years, 172±6 cm, 62.76±7.55 kg) in two groups: Athletes (n= 10) and non-athletes (n= 10) were classified. Both groups were sampled 4 times (Every time 5cc of the elbow vein) in two steps (before and after serving supplementation) and the basic level and delay soreness index changes (LDH and CK), using Pars laboratory test kit and Autoanalaizer AT- classical alpha were evaluated. The protocol of this study was, Bruce (using a treadmill to assess VO2max) and Faulkner (using the treadmill, V= 12.9 km/h and g= 20, to assess aerobic power). Bruce and Faulkner test reliability was obtained at 0.95 to 0.99 and 0.76 to 0.91, respectively. To examine the differences in the various stages of sampling, as well as intra-group and out-group differences, repeated measure, ANOVA, dependent and independent tests were used.

Results: The findings showed that short-term use of CoQ10 supplements led to no significant change, CK (P= 0.19), LDH (P= 0.12), anaerobic power (P= 0.17) and aerobic power (P= 0.43) in both groups of athletes and non-athletes.

Conclusion: The overall results indicate that the level of physical fitness (compared to the athlete or athletes being), had no effect on aerobic, and anaerobic capacity and muscle soreness due to coenzyme Q10 supplementation. Both groups benefited equally from the supplement.

Keywords: CoQ10 Supplement, Aerobic and anaerobic power, DOMS, Athletes and non- athletes.
