Objective: Resistance exercise has an important role in increasing muscle strength and endurance. Increasing muscle endurance reduces fatigue and back pain, and also maintains body balance and musculoskeletal status. Therefore, this study was conducted to evaluate the effect of TRX resistance exercise on muscular endurance of female high school students.
Methods: This experimental study was performed on 50 patients, who had been selected by simple random method and assigned to two groups of intervention and control. Intervention group received 8 sessions of TRX resistance exercise by two instructors as the researcher’s assistants (2 sessions per week for 50-60 minutes per session). Control group received the school’s routine training and exercise. The upper body endurance was measured by sit-up test and lower body endurance was measured by Scott test. The collected data were entered into SPSS-21 statistical software and analyzed by descriptive and inferential statistics.
Results: Covariance test showed a significant difference in upper body muscle strength with elimination of pre-test effect (P <0.01, Eta = 0.39). It also showed a significant difference in lower body muscle endurance with elimination of pre-test effect (P <0.01, Eta = 0.67). 
Conclusion: The results showed that TRX resistance exercise increased the muscular endurance of upper and lower torso in female students. Therefore, it is recommended to use this simple, low-cost, but effective training method in sport centers, homes and small spaces.
