Abstract

A strong diaphragm is significant to wind musicians because it provides a steady airstream while they are playing their instruments. In order to strengthen the diaphragm, musicians use various methods to build up their endurance. One such method is by exercising because as a person’s breathing rate increases, the lungs and diaphragm are constantly being used. Because of this, the person’s diaphragm expands, allowing for longer sustainments of breath and longer endurance. This raises the question of how the effects of short-term exercise can affect the diaphragmatic breathing rate over wind instruments for wind musicians. The purpose of this was to help rising and professional musicians improve their endurance in a faster way. It was hypothesized that as the amount of cardio exercise increases, there would be an increase in breath sustainability because the exercises allow the diaphragms to expand and circulate the respiratory system. To determine this, human participants were gathered for three trials: no exercise, five minutes of exercise, and 10 minutes of exercise. Each participant had to perform cardio exercises; a breath builder was utilized to measure the amount of time they could sustain the ball in the air. An ANOVA test was used because the experiment had more than two treatments in the experiment. The results demonstrated that F(2, 5.07) = 0.0081, p<0.05. This reveals that the null hypothesis was rejected because the data was significant. The results demonstrated that short-term exercise does not affect the time of breath sustainability.
