Introduction: Recovery period is an integral part after exercise which in this metabolic rate is higher than resting levels. Understanding the dynamics of oxygen during recovery period with use of its characteristics, after exercise help the coaches, athletes and patients with different rates of heart failure to design a training program. Accordingly, this article is investigating the effects of maximal oxygen consumption on oxygen dynamics of recovery period after maximum continuous activity in female basketball players. Materials and Methods For this study, seven elite female basketball players with mean age 21±1.5 years, weight 60.71±5.7 kg, height 168.3±5.6 cm, Body mass index 21.7±1.7 and VO2 max 41.4±3.4 ml/kg/min were selected. For analyzing the respiration gases, the Gas Analyzer machine was used. To analyze the data, it was used from Paired t-test in the level of α = 0.05. Results: After maximum continuous activity, in half time oxygen recovery (P= 0.005) and in half time of the recovery of oxygen pulse (P= 0.001), significant difference was observed. Conclusion: People who have higher VO2 peak , have faster dynamic of oxygen and shorter recovery time in half and return in their reset is faster. Key words: oxygen dynamics of recovery period, Peak oxygen consumption, Maximum continuous activity.
