In this experiment a group of 17-year-old male and female subject’s results were used to predict our hypothesis.  We stated that male individual subjects will have a lower resting heart rate than female individual’s subjects after exercise. In our first data of Heart of Non- Conditioned Runners it is shown that males had a significantly lower resting rate than female subjects who did not exercise. Men had an average of 76 HR whereas females had a 78 HR. When it hit the 1 min mark, males had an average of 134 HR. Females had an average of 140 HR. At 2mins, men had an average of 146.05 HR and females had an average of 157. At 5 mins, males had an average of 162 HR and females an average of 173 HR. For our second data Heart of Conditioned Runners, it is shown that males had the same results of lower resting rate than female subjects who did not exercise. Men had an average of 70 HR whereas females had 137.2 HR. When it hit the 1 min mark, males had an average of 128 HR. Females had an average of 137.2 HR. At 2mins, men had an average of 135.2HR and females had an average of 155. At 5 mins, males had an average of 155.3 HR and females an average of 168.4 HR. These results clearly show that males had a lower resting rate than females just as we hypothesized.
