Purpose: The purpose of this study was to present aerobic exercise that can be performed together with respiratory muscle strength training and examine whether the vital capacity of individuals can be enhanced when respiratory muscle strength training is conducted together with aerobic exercise.

Subjects and Methods: The subjects were 10 male students and 8 female students. The sling exercise method was used to conduct three types of training to strengthen the muscles around the shoulder joints. A maximal respiratory quotient measurement device was used to measure the vital capacity of the subjects five times.

Results: There was a significant difference in each respiratory training time point compared with before the performance of respiratory training.

Conclusion: This study presented respiratory muscle strength training using a sling as a training method for respiratory training.
