The a pre-exercise screening questionnaire to detect

The experiment was carried out by a volunteer and an
observer to record the results. The volunteer first completed a pre-exercise
screening questionnaire to detect any health concerns (see Appendix). The questionnaire indicated that there were no health
concerns and the volunteer could safely proceed with the experiment. The
volunteer was female, age 19 with above average fitness ability. The experiment
was completed in a room inside a gym, with no sunlight to affect perspiration
levels, the warmer temperature could affect the levels. The volunteer’s
exercise of choice was to complete continuous jumping jacks. The materials used
in the experiment comprised of a stopwatch (mobile phone application) to record
the time of the exercise and a pen and paper to record the final results. Before
the exercise commenced the first results were recorded. The exercise was
repeated eight times at two minute intervals and rates were recorded for
fifteen seconds. The outcomes of heart and breathing rates were multiplied by
four to reach the results per minute. The volunteer rested for two minutes after
the exercise was completed and results were measured once again to detect the
effect that exercise has on homeostatic conditions in the body.


The volunteer’s heart rate was measured by checking the
pulse over the carotid artery. The breathing rate was measured by observing the
rise and fall of the volunteer’s chest and there was visible sweat on the
volunteer’s body to record perspiration.
