Background: In the assessment of the respiratory system, pulmonary function tests (PFTs) have achieved a lot of importance nowadays due to an increase in the cardiorespiratory disease and to a steep rise in air pollution. These functional tests and their parameters tend to have a relationship with lifestyle such as regular exercise and non-exercise. Hence, the present study was undertaken to assess the effects of dynamic exercising people exercise in on the respiratory system which are compared with normal healthy sedentary individuals. Aim and Objective :To study the changes brought about in the respiratory physiology in response to exercise and also to note the changes that do occur as the age advances both in sedentary and exercising individuals Materials and Methods: PFTs such as forced expiratory volume in 1 s (FEV1), forced vital capacity (FVC), peak expiratory flow (PEF), VC, and maximum voluntary ventilation (MVV) of the study group were included in the study. The results were analyzed with standard spirometer. The arithmetic means and standard deviations of data have been obtained in the statistical evaluation. As a result of the findings obtained, independent sample t-test has been applied Results and Conclusion:The results showed significantly increased (p<0.001) mean FVC, mean FEV1, mean FEV% and mean PEF in male atheletes practicing regular dynamic exercise and more so in young persons. This suggests that regular dynamic exercise has improved lung function.
