Armed forces recruits were tested
during a six month period of intense basic training. Data was collected at the start, after 12
weeks and 20 weeks. Means indicated significant decreases in cardio stress and increases in
visual skills performance after 12 weeks and 20 weeks. Results indicate that cardio stress has a
definite effect on visual performance.
