BMI and heart rate Essay
Investigate if there is any difference between body mass index, BMI, and
heart rate at rest and during exercise. I hypothesise that the higher the BMI the higher
the heart rate will be at both rest and work. Method under which the investigation
was conducted involved getting the resting heart rate of volunteers and then place
them on a treadmill for 5 minutes at 11 kph and the heart rate is tested once more
within 10 seconds of leaving the treadmill. Results concluded to be general,
inaccurate and reasonably unreliable due to many differing variables although they
were sufficient to highlight trends and prove the hypotheses made.
A conclusion can
be drawn that heart does increase as BMI increases to a certain extent, although many
variables must be taken into account.To investigate if there is a relationship between Body Mass Index, BMI, and
heart rate at rest and during exercise.
