Introduction:-To balance a healthy way in life, sports are one of the most important social activity instruments to maintain our daily life. Physical activities of the individuals such as physical, social, mental and spiritual aspects that change certain rules are described in sports and sometimes performed individually or in teams. Maximum oxygen intake is a fundamental measure of the physiology of exercise. VO2 max and anaerobic power are known as the functional limitation of the cardiopulmonary system as well as the degree of aerobic fitness. VO2 max and anaerobic power is the maximum capacity of a person's body to transport and use oxygen during exercise, which indicates a person's physical fitness. Individuals with high cardiovascular function can generate more energy and perform better, such as athletes.
Aim and objective: To compare VO2 max and aerobic power in sportsmen and control groups.
Material and methods:Vo2 max (aerobic power) was calculated using the Astrands-Rhyming nomogram and Harward’s step technique. The present study was a cross-sectional study. 50 sportsmen were selected from a medical college. 50 sedentary medical students as a control in the age group of 18-25 years, who were playing that particular game for 3-5 years, were selected from the medical institute.
Result: VO2 max in sportsmen (4.48±0.31) lit/min was significantly higher than in the control group (3.29±0.29) lit/min and anaerobic power in sportsmen (1146.91±33.07) watts was higher than in the control group (994.41±27.43) watts.
Conclusion: Regular physical exercise like sporting activity improves cardio-respiratory fitness (Vo2 max and anaerobic power).

This study aims to explain the VO2 max value in adolescents and the differences in lymphocytes and eosinophil
levels after moderate aerobic exercise. The study was conducted with a post-test only control group design on 15
basketball player students and 15 non-basketball player students at SMAN 1 Banjarbaru. The sampling
technique was carried out by using purposive sampling method. Measurement of VO2 max value was executed
on the first day with MFT (Multistage Fitness Tes / Bleep Test) and measurement of lymphocytes and eosinophil
levels was executed on the third day by trained medical personnel after the subject did the moderate aerobic
exercise. Data analysis used was the Mann-Whitney test for VO2 max value and Saphiro-Wilk test for
lymphocytes and the Mann-Whitney test for eosinophil levels. The results of the data analysis is the VO2 max
value between groups were significantly different (p = 0.000) and there were no difference in lymphocytes (p >
0.05) and eosinophil (p > 0.05) count between groups after the moderate aerobic exercise. We conclude that
basketball players student have a better VO2 max value than non-basketball players and moderate aerobic
exercise were unable to make any significant difference between the groups in the number of lymphocytes and
eosinophils

Background: Maximum oxygen consumption (VO2 max) is an indicator of the basic concept of physical fitness (physical fitness). The factors that determine VO2 max include heart lung function, age, aerobic muscle metabolism, body obesity, exercise state, genetics, gender, multivitamins. The age of 20-30 years is the peak age of heart and lung endurance, then it will decrease due to increasing age, the person will reduce various sports activities. Methods: This study was conducted to determine differences in VO2 Max in riverbank communities in HST Regency based on age, sex, and cellular immunity (neutrophils and lymphocytes). The samples used were 30 samples each based on adult and elderly age, sex, and neutrophil and lymphocyte examination results. Sampling using simple random sampling on samples that meet the inclusion criteria. VO2 Max is measured by the Rockport method. Data analysis used unpaired t test if the data were normally distributed and Mann Whitney if the data were not normally distributed with a confidence level of 95%. Results: VO2 max values for the less fit and fit men group were 35.7% and 64.3%, respectively. Meanwhile, the VO2 max value for the less fit and fit women group was 62.5% and 37.5%, respectively. The p value of both groups is 0.03. The neutrophil mean of the less fit and fitter groups were 63.5 and 59.1, respectively. The neutrophil mean for the less fit and fitter groups were 27.6 and 31.1, respectively.Conclusion: There are significant differences in VO2 max in groups of women and men, adults and elderly residents of Hulu Sungai Tengah Regency, South Kalimantan. In addition, there was also a significant difference in the percentage of neutrophils and lymphocytes between the VO2 max fitter and less fitter groups.
