The purpose of this research was to investigate the effect of physical exercise and addiction of female rats on male offspring's physical growth indexes. The research method was experimental. Statistical population consisted of female rats (albino – wistar) obtained from Pasteur Institute, Iran. The data were gathered from 116 male offspring (including 4 groups: addicted mother– sporting mother – addictive sporting mother and intact group) and 80 mothers (to estimate the length of pregnancy). The drug used in this study was manufactured by Daroopakhsh factory. The findings from physical growth indexes (height, weight, head circumference and gestational days) suggested that addiction (before pregnancy) played an effective role in physical growth indexes within the first 5 days which can be due to the increased pregnancy period (P<0.001). But the growth process of those subjects born of sporting mothers was better (P<0.001) in a way that exercise in addicted mothers diminished the devastating effect of addiction.
