Introduction: In soccer game, players need to endure lots of pressure on their body and thus need to have high level of physical and psychological fitness to use proper technical and tactical skills. Furthermore, children have to corporate in resistance training to develop their sport-specific skills and reduce the risk of sport injuries in training and competitions. TRX is one kinds of suspension resistance training that lead to more recruitment of motor units and more neuromuscular coordination. Purpose: The aim of this study was to compare the effect of two types of body-weight and suspension resistance training on general soccer ability skills of children. Methods: Thus, 30 children (mean age 12.3 ± 0.55 yrs.) without the history of resistance training were randomly divided into three suspended resistance training, unsuspended resistance training and control groups (n=10 in each group).These children have been participated in regular and identical soccer training three days per week during the investigation. All subjects in the three groups carried out the Mor-Christian soccer skill test before and 48 hours post training periods. The eight week of resistance training on suspended and unsuspended surfaces were designed progressively according to ACSM recommendations for children. Suspension training was conducted using TRX bands and unsuspension training using body weight. Comparison between groups were conducted using one-way analysis of variance (Using delta method). Results: The result of study indicated that soccer skills in Mor-Christian test increased significantly in TRX group compared with body-weight training group (P˂0.05). Discussion: Thus, according to the low risk, low cost, and fun of TRX, and due to the results of this study, this type of resistance training could be recruited in children population to develop their general soccer ability skills more efficiently than traditional body-weight training.
