Seventeen rows participants selected among National Iranian Females Boat Race Team called:” Iranian Rowing”. Their average age is between 19.66 and standard deviation 2.95 years old.

Statistical analysis has even more variables to compare the effect of a period of intensive training variables measured were used. Data were analyzed using p=0.05 was considered significant. The result of our experiments specifies between saliva density (p=0.01, t (16) =4.513) saliva testosterone (t (16) = 4.845, p=0.001) and over training before and after the exercise (p=0.05, t (16) =-3.882). But no significance psychological skill differences have seen during these exercises courses. Concerning these observation and achievement we came to conclusion that during national rowing team preparation exercise would effected on athletic woman testosterone and saliva cortisol hormones and over training.
