Approach of this study was explaining of relationship and comparison of body composition characteristics with heart rate product in junior boys and girls systolic blood pressure. The statistical population of this study was 200 junior girls and boys with an age range of 13-15 years old. After completing the full explanation of the purpose and method of performing the research for the selected subjects, we received written consent from them and the medical questionnaire was provided to them. Heart rate and systolic blood pressure were measured at rest time. The findings showed that there is a correlation between body mass, body mass index and waist to hip measure ratio with heart rate product in systolic blood pressure (P<0.05). Body mass index had the highest relationship with heart rate product in systolic blood pressure. The effect of body fat mass and body mass index on heart rate product was different in systolic blood pressure in both sexes. The interactive effect of gender on any of the body fat mass and body mass index variables was similar to systolic blood pressure. It can be concluded that the factors of iconology and body composition (height, body weight, waist to hip measure ratio, body mass index) have a significant role in the changes in the value of the heart rate in the systolic blood pressure.
