The purpose of this study is to answer four specific questions: 1. What is the breathing rate of a junior high athlete after a training period? 2. What is the recovery rate of a junior high athlete after exercise after a training period? 3. What is the vital capacity of the lungs after a training period? 4. What is the breathing rate of a junior high athlete during the recovery period?

It was hypothesized that the breathing rate would decrease, the vital capacity would increase and the recovery rate of the athlete would be shortened.

This study concerned itself with ten subjects. These subjects were students at the Dunbar Junior High School of Beaumont, Texas. The students were male students, eighth and ninth graders, between the ages of 13 and 15 years. They were students who worked very hard to win.
