An Investigation, to show how different exercises effect your pulse rate
We all have a heart rate. You can measure your heart rate by taking your pulse, as this is a reflection of your heart rate. To take your pulse rate, you use your index and middle finger, together and place them on the under side of your jaw until you can feel a steady beat. This beat is blood being pumped around the body, which causes the arteries to expand and then contract. You count the number of times you can feel this for one minute. This is your pulse rate in beats per minute. This pulse rate can vary from 150 beats per minute in young children, to about 60 in the aged.
To get your pulse rate to speed up, you can do many different things. You can exercise. This exercise can be done in many diverse ways; you could simply run on the spot for one minute, do star jumps for one minute, stride jumps, step-ups etc. Exercise gets your heart rate up because the faster you exercise, the harder your muscles work. This means that your muscles require more oxygen
