system, such as smoking, drinking, exercise, gender, weight, height, diet, sleep, and many others.The main purpose of the experiment was to relate the different life factors with individual cardiovascular system. To compare the effects of the exercise on different genders, resting heart rate and blood pressure were compared to the after exercising heart rate and blood pressure. The blood pressure was divided into two subgroups systolic and diastolic (Burpee et al., 2016). Systolic pressure is referred to the pressure in the arteries when the heart is contracting. Diastolicpressure is referred to the pressure during the relaxation phase when the blood is filling in the compartments ("Understanding Blood Pressure Readings,” 2015)Our group hypothesized that the heart rate would be higher in the female’s heart if the same amount of exercise is done due to smaller size of heart in females, but the blood pressure should not have significance difference, because it is a ratio. To examine if our hypothesis was
