Content validity of these tools is appointed by experts and internal consistency of questions in a pilot study was 0.93 and 0.79, respectively. Data were analyzed in two levels of descriptive and inferential statistics. The results showed that self-concept mean of elite wrestlers were 127.95 that evaluate in high extent. Self-concept subscales means of elite wrestlers were as followed: skill (18.97), body (15.20), aerobic (14.72), anaerobic (18.52), mental (20.37) and performance (22.37). Exercise self-efficacy mean of elite wrestlers was 65.66 that evaluate in middle extent. There was a significant correlation between self-concept and exercise self-efficacy of elite wrestlers (P<0.05). Relationship between exercise self-efficacy and aerobic subscale of athletic self-concept was significant (P<0.05). There was no difference between athletic self-concept and exercise self-efficacy of wrestlers in terms of years of championship (P>0.05). According to results of study, elite wrestlers have enough perceived ability for performing in apex during exercise and competition. However their exercise self-efficacy assesses in the middle level.
