# Exercise Design Lab

## Overview

What we did in our experiment was that we chose exercises to do that could raise our heart rate, then did them and measured the heart rate after the exercise and compared it to that of the previously measured heart rate. Our goal was to compare the differences in the heart rate and recovery times of our two participants, person A and B, in the experiment.

## Hypothesis

If person 1 and person 2 were to complete each exercise, push ups and running up the stairs, then person 1, who does sports will have a lower heart rate and shorter recovery time.

## Variables

Independent: Exercise type. Push-ups, stairs, etc.

Dependent: Heart rate and recovery time.

Control: Resting heart rate of each individual

Constant: Duration of exercise, form of exercise, location that the exercise is done in, and waiting until heart rate recovery.

## Conclusion

If person A and person B were to complete each exercise, then person A, who competes in sports will have a lower heart rate and shorter recovery time. This hypothesis is incorrect based on the collected data, Person B was found to have a shorter recovery time after completing the exercises than Person A. Person B, who has a cardiovascular system more acclimated to the type of exercise, was found to have a steadily shorter recovery time along with a lower average heart rate.
