Water immersion increases breathing effort against elevated hydrostatic pressure. Thus, aquatic exercise training may have a greater benefit for the respiratory function when compared to the same intensity of exercise performed on dryland. The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of underwater cycling on the respiratory function and breathing pattern when compared to land‐based cycling performed at the matched exercise intensity.
