  1. Conduct the Queens Step test (provided) for all 4 students. Record the resting heart rates before commencing test and record recovery rates for five minutes after completion of test. Construct a suitable chart to record all information, including norms.

    Ella may have changed her result, to be more like the other girls. Also, the hype before the test may have increased her resting heart rate as well as the recovery time, as the students kept moving around, increasing their heart rate. In terms of her aerobic fitness, she has a low to reasonable level that can easily be improved with more a more committed training program. This is based on her actions throughout the test, as she showed signs of fatigue and her heart rate.

    DETERMINING RATIO OF PROTEIN, CARBOHYDRATE AND FATS Now that we know how to determine calories, let�s take a look at how to calculate ratios of protein, carbohydrate and fats. If you�re looking to put on muscle, a ratio of 55 percent carbohydrate, 30 percent protein and 15 percent fat is an excellent balance. The 55 percent carbohydrate (keep refined carbohydrates to a minimum) will provide ample energy for intense workouts, and the 30 percent protein will provide the necessary building blocks for muscle.

  6. Investigating the speed of a spherical object on a slope.

    has on the speed of the ball as it travels down the slope. To get the speed of the ball from experiments I will use the equation 'speed = distance / (divided by) time'. In my 'preliminary work' you can see how I am going to measure these things. In my experiment I am going to keep the same everything other than the height of the slope. In my 'preliminary work' you can see what things I am going to use and how I am going to take measurements. I will keep the same the: * Material of slope (I will use the triangular hollow metal ramp)

    Each human has a different BMR, however it is lowest at rest when a person is sleeping (NHMRC 2005). It is also found to vary with age where a younger person will have a much higher BMR than adults as their body still undergoes rapid cell division, which requires abundant energy, according to Hanson (2003). However, each person performs daily activity where they are engaged in different exercise and task. When the exercise and tasks are applied, the active metabolic rate (AMR)
