The impact of music and its psychological and physiological changes during exercise is issue that has always been focused on sport science experts. The aim of this study was to compare the effects of musical exercise on aerobic capacity and quality of life in elderly men. This study was conducted on 45 elderly men. The participants were randomly allocated into three groups: aerobic musical exercise, non-musical, and control groups. The exercise group performed a program for 8 weeks, 3 times per week. The quality of life was measured using quality of life scale and the level of aerobic capacity was measured using Bruce test. The results showed that eight weeks of musical and non-musical aerobic exercise can result in significant improvement in anaerobic capacity and quality of life of elderly men. The result showed a significant difference among the three groups considering anaerobic capacity and quality of life of elderly men. Tukey post hoc test indicated no significant differences between the aerobic exercise with and without-music; whereas, there was a significant different among these groups and the control group. It can be concluded that participating in exercise program can enhance the aerobic capacity and quality of life elderly men and such programs can be recommended for this aged population to facilitate their aging process.
