Abstract: The purpose of this study was to evaluate certified female sport divers on selected physiological variables obtained during underwater and treadmill workbouts. The primary research question sought to determine the oxygen uptake (VO2) and heart rate measures of the subjects during an exercise bout while submerged on self-contained water breathing apparatus (scuba). An additional question asked whether the heart rate values obtained during the underwater exercise bout significantly differed from heart rate values obtained during a comparable workbout on the treadmill.
