The study will involve diving and training of the breathing muscles and its effect on endurance during diving. Prior to the study, subjects must come to the laboratory (4-5 hours) for a physical exam and testing, including an exercise test. Endurance during a dive will then be tested before and after 4 weeks of daily exercise of the breathing muscles. Subjects will be paid.
