Background: Although some studies have reported the health-related benefits for the pomegranate seed oil (PSO), there is not enough information on its combined effect with exercise. Therefore, in this study the effect of supplementation with pomegranate seed oil followed by resistance exercise on insulin resistance and lipid profile was considered in non-athletes men.  
Materials and Methods: In this semi-experimental double-blind randomized study non-athletic male (n=14) were divided into two groups: Exercise+Supplementation (n=7) and Exercise +Placebo (n=7). Both groups performed resistance training for 4 weeks (3 sessions per week). The experimental group consumed 2 capsules of pomegranate seed oil (400 mg) and the control group received 2 placebo capsules daily. Glucose, fasting insulin, total cholesterol, triglycerides, LDL-C, HDL-C, were measured at the beginning and end of the study. Insulin resistance was estimated using homeostasis formula (HOMA-IR).
Results: While the average concentration of HDL-C in Supplement+Exercise group was significantly increased compared to pre-test, no significant increase was seen compared to Placebo + Exercise group (P<0.05). Between and within group comparison for the changes in total cholesterol, triglycerides, LDL-C, glucose, fasting insulin and insulin resistance was not significant.
Conclusion: According to the results, it can be concluded that 4 weeks of resistance training followed by PSO supplementation, except for HDL-C, has no significant effect on the other lipid profiles and insulin resistance in healthy non-athlete men.
