Introduction: purpose of this study was the effect of different music rhythms (Fast rhythm and slow rhythm) in physiological responses of health young male after an exhaustive exercise session during primary minutes of recovery period. Methods: Seventeen healthy male (Ages: 19.76 ± 0.97 yr, Height: 176 ± 6.72 cm, Weight: 68.5 ±7 5.95 kg), voluntarily performed Bruce protocol until exhaustion with 72 hours between three stage of test. Then after exhaustion while listening to slow music and fast music in three stages, with counter balanced format in the seconds, 30, 60, 90 and 120 during recovery period variables (Heart rate, Cardiac output, Stroke volume, Ventilation, Tidal volume, Respiratory rate, Oxygen consumption and Blood pressure) were measured. Result: Result of this study show that listening to music during recovery period significant decrease of cardiac output, stroke volume, ventilation, tidal volume, oxygen consumption and systolic and diastolic blood pressure and significant increase of heart rate and respiratory rate (P<0.05). Conclusions: The present study showed that listening to music after vigorous exercise, decrease cardio- respiratory efficiency by decrease of stroke volume and tidal volume and increase of heart rate and respiratory rate.
