Elisa Giordano KIN 335 – Exercise Physiology Laboratory Lab Due: March 28, 2007 CALORIC OLYMPICS INTRODUCTION In this lab, everyone was first paired into groups of two, which made teams of boy-girl partners. Each individual put on a heart rate monitor to measure average heart rate during each exercise. Everyone then ran around a track for 12 minutes, succeeded by performing squats (55 pounds for females, 110 pounds for males) until they reached maximum, and swimming laps for 12 minutes. After each exercise everyone’s average heart rate was recorded as well as total number of laps ran, squats performed in a certain period of time, and total number of laps swam. The weight of each individual was also recorded. Using the given information, many different equations were used to calculate total caloric expenditure during each exercise; the team with the greatest total number of calories expended will be deemed the winner. Below are the following equations used to find desired information for each activity. EQUATIONS To find everyone’s weight in kilograms, I had to divide everyone’s weight in pounds by 2.2. o Body Weight (kg) = Body Weight (lbs.) ÷ 2.2 To find the speed at which each individual ran, I first had to calculate how far each individual traveled during the 12 minute period. o
