Objective: Recently, whole body vibration exercise has been developed as a new modality in the field of physiotherapy. It has been suggested that this exercise increases muscle power and strength and improves muscular performance. This study was performed to investigate the short term effects of the vibration training on the maximal push up in non-athlete female students. Materials and Methods: In this case- control study ,112 non-athlete female students of university of social welfare and rehabilitation sciences were randomly assigned to a vibration training group ( n=62) or a control ( n=50) group. Everyone in the vibration training group was asked to do maximal push up test (first maximal push up test). Then after 30 minutes rest, the vibration training group trained three times of 60 seconds vibration training for shoulder girdle. After 30 minutes rest they repeated the push up test again (second maximal push up test). Subjects in control group had a 60 min rest after doing push up test and repeated the test again without vibration training. Independent T-test was used to analysis the data. Results: results showed a significant increase in maximal push up in the experimental group after vibration training (P=0.00), but no significant difference was found in push up means of control group between pre-test and post-test (P=0.61). Conclusion: Our finding suggests that vibration training can increase the push up performance. It is possible the vibration training can improve neuromuscular performance
