Abstract: Background: Coronary artery bypass graft surgery may be a kind of surgical operation that redirects blood around clogged arteries to extend blood flow and oxygen to the heart. Aerobic is defined as relating to involving or requiring free oxygen and refers to use of oxygen adequately meet energy demands throughout exercise via aerobic metabolism. Objective: To extend Aerobic capability, to enhance exercise tolerance and cardiovascular endurance and To enhance respiratory capacity. Methodology: during a 3-week intervention study, 30 participants with options of CABG surgery were studied. They were divided into 2 groups by convenience sampling; Group A: Aerobic exercise. Pre and post treatment data was collected and analyzed using SPSS 26.0. Paired and unpaired t test were used to find out the significance difference between pre and post. Result: A significant improvement in Aerobic capacity, exercise tolerance, cardiovascular endurance and Breathing capacity (p?0.05) after the treatment was found. Greater statistical significant improvement was seen. Conclusion: In the experimental conditions used in the study, both the groups showed significant improvement in Aerobic capacity, exercise tolerance, cardiovascular endurance and breathing capacity. The use of Aerobic exercises evidenced a significantly greater improvement in Aerobic capacity, exercise tolerance, cardiovascular endurance and breathing capacity when compared to pre and post.
