Sporty lifestyle that is a positive lifestyle with the purpose of maintaining our health condition with smoking which is a lifestyle that gives adverse effect to the human body due to bad subtances in it. Thus, the researchers looked at the adverse effect of smoking and sport in the form of V02 Max points which is the maximum lung capacity that is affected by the frequency factor of sport exercises, the number of cigarettes per day with smoking duration. The study was conducted using Beep Test method to obtain V02 Max points which will be compared and analyzed to see the influence of both lifestyle directly. The respondents were 18-25 years old man with normal Body Mass Index (BMI). Of the 48 datas that are already divided 50:50 for smokers and non-smokers. The result showed that sport exercise frequency and number of cigarettes per day had significant effect on V02 Max points either independently or combined but for sport exercise frequency and duration of smoking only independently had a significat relationship. Sport exercise frequency has a positive effect to V02 Max Points while smoking has a negative effect for V02 Max points. So Smoking has a negative effect on respiration even though we have been exercising regularly.
