EXTENSION: What Effect does exercise have on pulse rate?
WATCH the video How Your Heart Works (6min)
DESIGN: an experiment to test this idea. You can test normal pulse rate, the pulse rate straight after exercise and recovery pulse rate, 1 minute after exercise has finished.
You may wish to test the results over a 2 or 3-week period for 5 days a week.
When a fit person, such as an athlete, exercises the pulse rate, breathing rate and lactic acid levels rise much less than they do in an unfit person. The time which it takes for pulse and breathing rate to return to normal is called the recovery time, and the fitter you are, the shorter your recovery time.
Design your experiment.
What will you include running, skipping, walking?
Will you have a control?
How long will the sessions be?
Write your own questions to help you design your experiment.
