Brief Summary:
The investigators seek to understand how reflexes from the breathing muscles influence blood pressure during exercise. Furthermore, the investigators are determining if increasing breathing muscle strength (via inspiratory muscle training) influences the respiratory muscle contribution to blood pressure during exercise.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: IMT Group Other: Inspiratory Muscle Training (IMT)
Inspiratory muscle training (IMT) are breathing exercises used to increase strength and endurance of the respiratory muscles.

Sham Comparator: No IMT Group Other: No Inspiratory Muscle Training (IMT)
No inspiratory muscle training.




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. VO2 max test [ Time Frame: Through study completion, an average of one year. ]
    Using a MedGraphics metabolic cart, the investigators will measure the maximum amount of oxygen that an individual can utilize during exercise. During this test the subject will be asked to exercise to his/her max capacity on a recumbent bicycle while breathing through a mouth piece that is hooked into the MedGraphics computer software.

  2. Blood Pressure [ Time Frame: Through study completion, an average of one year. ]
    Blood pressure will be taken every few minutes during exercise testing using a standard blood pressure cuff to monitor changes in blood pressure.
