The Effect Of Exercise On Pulse Rates

The males tested had the greatest average resting mean arterial pressure overall at rest and immediately after the two-minute workout. All the female’s mean arterial pressures recovered following four min after the exercise. In contrast, three out of the five males recovered although they had a much lower rate change in comparison to the females. This data is illustrated in graphs four, five, and six.
Pulse rate The females tested on average had a significantly greater pulse rate at rest and immediately after the exercise in comparison to the males. Although the net change between male and females was very close, the recovery was not. All of the male pule rates recovered whereas the females only had one subject recover. This data is illustrated

Thought there is not a lot of subjects studied, sex differences can lead to different respiratory responses to exercise. It has been proven then women, on average, generally have a “smaller lung [volume] and maximal [exhale] rates” even when compared to a male of similar height. There has even been a report on the correlation of women on the menstrual cycles and ventilation (Sheel). Graph 1 shows the comparison between the average resting respiration rate of the males and females tested. On average, the males had a resting respiration rate of 17.25 breaths/min and the females and a significantly lower 14.5 breaths/min. The data take right after the workout at time zero (graph 2) shows a significant increase in respiration by the females with a peak of 22.75 breaths per minute. In comparison, the male, on average, had a very low respiration rate at 21.75 breaths per minute. This data supports the information of research source that women have a “maximal expiratory flow …show more content…
To ensure reasonable data, the result were recorded before and after the workout of four different males and four different females. Based on the results, it was concluded that during exercise cardio function would increase due to the fact that the body is using more energy and oxygen. Also it was concluded that gender does play a role in the cardio system. Based on the overall results, the hypothesis that exercise does play a role in heart rate and function was
