Alternatively you can do exercises that do not require equipment, such as walking, doing jumping jacks, jogging in place, etc. You will want to do at least two different types of exercises, both of which you can sustain for 15 minutes.
Remember to always stop an exercise if you feel faint. Use the first two fingers of one hand to feel your radial pulse on the opposite wrist. You should find your radial pulse on the "thumb side" of your wrist, just below the base of your hand. Practice finding your pulse until you can do it quickly.
You can alternatively take your carotid pulse to do this activity, but be sure you know how to safely take it and press on your neck only very lightly with your fingers.
To do this, take your pulse when you have been resting and multiply the number of beats you count in 10 seconds by six. This will give you your resting heart rate in beats per minute bpm. What is your resting heart rate? Write it on a scrap piece of paper.
Choose at least two different exercises. Some examples include jumping rope, lifting a two-pound weight, riding a bike, hula-hooping, walking, etc. Gather any needed materials.
If you want to make a homemade hula-hoop, steps for doing this are given in the activity Swiveling Science: Applying Physics to Hula-Hooping. Do you think the activities will affect your heart rate differently? How do you think doing each activity will affect your heart rate?
Before starting it, make sure you have been resting for a few minutes so that your heart is at its resting heart rate.
While you do this, write down the number of beats you count in 10 seconds after one, two, five, 10 and 15 minutes of activity. You want to quickly check your pulse because it can start to slow within 15 seconds of stopping exercising.
How do the number of beats you count change over time? How did you feel by the end of the exercise?Effects of aerobic training intensity on resting, exercise and post exercise blood pressure, heart rate and heart-rate variability.
Journal of Human Hypertension. . Jun 28, · The changes in metabolic syndrome risk factors, resting heart rate, physical fitness, and arterial stiffness were measured and analyzed before and after initiation of the exercise program to determine the effect of exercise.
g Note that the warning about exercise increases the heart rate a little, and explain that some of the systems in our body can be consciously or deliberately controlled. h Give each group of students an exercise to do – some vigorous, some less vigorous. Take heart rate again during exercise if possible.
Feb 01, · If an aerobic exercise is performed for a long time, it will affect the parasympathetic nerve, thus increasing stroke volume and lowering the resting heart rate, which has a positive effect on reducing cardiovascular diseases (Riebe et al., ). The effects of exercise training on the heart have been widely explored.
1 Experimental and human studies have shown that exercise training improves survival after myocardial infarction. 2,3 This effect may be partially explained by an increase in cardiac vagal activity, which reduces the susceptibility to arrhythmias and sudden death.
4 Indeed. The Effect of Exercise on Heart Rate The aim of this investigation is to find out how different types of exercise can affect my heart rate. To measure and record my heart rate, I am going to undergo an4/4(1).
