ABSTRACT
SALES, W. F.; MOREIRA, O. C. Cardiopulmonary capacity and body composition of students participating and non of physical education classes. Brazilian Journal of Biomotricity. v. 6, n. 3, p. 153-158, 2012. Low levels of cardiorespiratory fitness are associated with higher prevalence of cardiovascular disease and mortality from all causes. Thus, this study aimed to compare the cardiorespiratory and anthropometric characteristics of students participating and not participating in the classes of Physical Education. We evaluated 20 participants in physical education classes (age: 12.25 ± 1.12 years) and 20 non-participants (age: 13.15 ± 1.31 years), measuring up to body mass, height and estimating cardiorespiratory fitness by the 20 meters Shuttle-run test. Statistical analysis consisted of descriptive exploration and comparison of independent variables (test t), adopting p
