This study was to test the pulmonary of the elder subjects who participate the jogging and Taqi and discuss the function of aerobic to influence the pulmonary function.


84 aged subjects were divided into four groups: jogging group, Taqi group, composite group and non-exercise group. And the pulmonary function of them was studied respectively by the examine apparatus ( Chestac-65 Model). The FVC, FEV1, FEV1%, PEFR, MVV and RV were tested and analyze.


1, The FVC, FEV1 of the aerobic exercise group were significant better than non-exercise group (P<0.01).
2, The FVC, FEV1 and FEV1% of the composite group were significant better than the jogging group and Taqi group. There were no significant difference between the jogging group and Taqi group.

Discussion / Conclusions

It was found that the pulmonary function in exercise group was significant better than that in the non-exercise group; the pulmonary function in the composite group was highest grades among jogging group and Taqi group. The regular aerobic exercise was good to keep the pulmonary function in aged people and it was probably to have more advantages to improve the function and delay the failing for the aged to take various aerobic exercises instead of taking just single.
