Wendy Cao 12/6/07 Post Lab 9 Exercise Physiology Lab 2 Title: Graded Exercise Test Purpose: The purpose of this lab is to determine my anaerobic threshold and evaluate changes in the work done by my body using an exercise protocol using the treadmill, either the Bruce or the Balke-Naughton test, which would reflect the changes. Method Equipment: The following equipment will be needed for the lab: 1) Treadmill 2) BP Cuff 3) Mouth Piece and nose plug 4) Metabolic Cart 5) Heart rate monitor 6) Stethoscope 7) RPE chart Exercise protocol: 1) Before starting the test, appropriate running attire is required. Make sure the exercise protocol is designed to a graded exercise test. The GXT should be incremental, use large muscle groups, and should allow the subject to reach max heart rate in 12-15 minutes. 2) Take pre test heart rate and blood pressure while in standing position 3) Hook subject up to metabolic cart 4) At every two minutes, enter the heart rate and RPE into the computer and increase the grade as prescribed for the protocol 5) Take blood pressure every 1-2 minutes during exercise 6) Continue test until subject reaches at least 85%-90% of heart rate max, which is 220 – age.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
