The purpose of the present study was to examine 1) whether O<sub>2</sub> uptake (V̇O<sub>2</sub>) oscillates during light exercise and 2) whether the oscillation is enhanced after impulse exercise. After resting for 1 min on a bicycle seat, subjects performed 5-min pre-exercise with 25 watts work load, 10-s impulse exercise with 200 watts work load and 15-min post exercise with 25 watts work load at 80 rpm. V̇O<sub>2</sub> during pre-exercise significantly increased during impulse exercise and suddenly decreased and re-increased until 23 s after impulse exercise. In the cross correlation between heart rate (HR) and V̇O<sub>2</sub> after impulse exercise, V̇O<sub>2</sub> strongly correlated to HR with a time delay of −4 s. Peak of power spectral density (PSD) in HR appeared at 0.0039 Hz and peak of PSD in V̇O<sub>2</sub> appeared at 0.019 Hz. The peak of the cross power spectrum between V̇O<sub>2</sub> and HR appeared at 0.0078 Hz. The results suggested that there is an oscillation in O<sub>2</sub> uptake during light exercise that is associated with the oscillation in O<sub>2</sub> consumption in active muscle. The oscillation is enhanced not only by change in O<sub>2</sub> consumption but also by O<sub>2</sub> content transported from active muscle to the lungs.
