Background: Muscular soreness and pain are common and prevalent experiences following performanceof physical activities. This is accompanied with feelings of pain, stiffness, wellness and muscular cramp.Aim & objects: This study was done in order to determining effects of LPG massage system on delayedOnset Muscle Soreness and muscular performance after resistance exercise.Methods: twenty inactive females [aged 21.9±1.02 years, BMI 21.61±1.62 kg/m2] were randomlyassigned to a treatment (LPG system) group (n=10) and control group (n=10). Both group performed 3 set×15 reps (70% MCV) with curl hamstring system to induce muscle soreness and 1set ×25 reps (20%MCV) for recovery. One hour later, was received 15 min massaging by LPG system technique S6 model.Creatine Kinase (CK), pain, flexibility, thigh circumference, maximum isometric strength and verticaljump performance were measured at pre- exercise and 24 hour after exercise. Data was analyzed byindependent t-test.Results: Range of changes of Blood CK activity, pain and thigh circumference were significantly,decreased after LPG massage treatment (tck= 9.08 IU/ml, tpain= 6.72, tthc= 5.85 cm, p
