Aims Physical activity is usually accompanied by free radicals’ production and oxidative stress. Moreover, to prevent adverse effects, coaches and athletes have to use proper supplementation. Therefore, the present study aimed to investigate the effect of short-term coenzyme Q10 supplementation on malondialdehyde and serum catalase enzyme activity following moderate and severe acute resistance training in inactive female students. 
Methods & Materials In total, 27 female students were randomly divided into three groups; the groups were homogeneous and equal (two groups of resistance training and one control group). The experimental groups were subjected to moderate-intensity acute (70% 1RM) acute and severe acute activity (85% 1RM) and supplemented with coenzyme Q10 (30 mg /d). CAT and MDA were measured in ELISA using a human kit.
Findings Moderate and severe acute resistance activities did not alter MDA and catalytic activity (P>0.05); however, after 2 weeks of coenzyme Q10 supplementation, those resulted in a significant decrease in MDA (0.006 and 0.01, respectively) and CAT (0.04 and 0.007, respectively). There were no significant differences between the effects of two exercises (P>0.05). 
Conclusion Short-term (two weeks) supplementation of coenzyme Q10 and severe acute resistance activity could reduce two important oxidative stress indexes (MDA and CAT).
