In order to receive full credit for the part of the project in the lesson, you must answer each question completely.

*****EACH Question is worth 100 POINTS. For question 1 you will see 30 points and so on. What that means is that if you complete that requirement, you will receive 30 points for doing so. When you complete all requirements for the question, you know you are ready to move on to the next section of the project*****

Lesson 7

You will be recording your resting heart rate and exercise heart rate. The best places to find your heart rate are on the side of where your adams apple is or on the palm side of your wrist towards the thumb side. You will count the amount of beats per 15 seconds and then multiply by 4. Example say I got 100 beats in 15 seconds ( 100x4=400 bpm)

Question 1

(50 points) In a complete sentence, tell me what your initial resting heart rate was in beats per minute.

(50 points) Resting heart rate is within reasonable values

• What did you use to find it?

• What was the rate?

Question 2

(50 points) In a complete sentence, tell me what your pulse rate was after vigorous exercise.

(50 points) Exercise heart rate is within reasonable values

• Choose something you can do for 10 minutes(fast walking, jogging, riding a bike, playing basketball)

• Be sure to record pulse right after the 10 minutes

Question 3

(100 points) In a complete sentence, tell me how long it took in minutes and seconds to get back to your resting heart rate. If you did not recover to that heart rate, explain why that could be.

Question 4

(70 points) In A paragraph (4-5 sentences), tell me

• What determines the recovery rate after exercise

• Do you think a person that is ‘fit’ will have a high heart rate during exercise? Why or Why not?

(30 points) Provide the MLA citation for the resources used for this section of the project
