Hypothesis: Exercises that require more involvement will result in individuals within this experiment having a higher heart rate proceeding the exercises, as well as a secondary hypothesis regarding how an individual’s age affects their heart rate through the recorded exercises.

Methods & Materials: When measuring the individuals in this experiment’s heart rate, we measured their radial pulse by using a 30-second digital stopwatch and counting each beat.

Conclusion: we conclude that exercise that requires more bodily involvement does result in a higher heart rate. When looking into the age aspect of our study we conclude that age does not have a direct relationship with individuals’ heart rates. We conclude this, with respect to the small sample size within this experiment.
