MaryKathryn, Trey, Chris
We set the experiment up this way because we thought it was the best way to compare.
Hypothesis: Doing jumping jacks for one minute will increase the heart rate more than push ups for one minute.
Independent variable: work out
Dependent variable: heart rate
Control: heart rate standing
Constant: time work out (s) and person
Average of push ups for MK: 83, Average of push ups for Chris: 75.3
The treason the jumping jacks made a higher heart rate was because it took more energy from the body as to push ups that didn't require as much muscle movement or energy.
