Abstract The objective of this lab report and our experiment was to show how the cardiovascular system is affected by reclining or standing position and light exercise. The average reclining systolic pressure is 116.2 mmHg, and the average standing systolic pressure is 115.9 mmHg. The standard deviation for reclining systolic pressure was 8.2, and the standard deviation for standing systolic pressure is 12.3. The average reclining heart rate is 69.1 beats per minute, and the average standing heart rate is 82.9 beats per minute. The standard deviation for reclining heart rate is 9.8, and the standard deviation for standing heart rate is 17.8. The average cardiovascular fitness score was 10.0, which would be rated as fair. More than half of the class was rated as fair for the cardiovascular fitness score. The objective of this experiment was to show how the cardiovascular system was affected by reclining or standing position and light exercise. By collecting further research, it was determined that light exercise has positive effects on cardiovascular health, which helps prove that our objective was correct.
