This workout was different, as there were extreme rises and falls as she had to rest in between every movement of every round and a few times in between. Therefore, Subject 2s HRMI was decided between when the Workout started to the first plateau of the workout, which ended up at .77 BPM/SEC. In between her resting and working out, her HR fell and rose on

average 10 BPM, which you see as constant slopes in the graphs. If we look at the end of the workout, she once again sat down to rest, and we see a PWHRD of -0.66 BPM/SEC. Lunge Results: If compare the results in Lunge 1 & 2, we once again see a raised HR that is an obviously distinguishes each workout from each other. Sub 1 Workout Time Resting HR Max HR Time to Max HRMI PWHRD Lunge 1 2:48 130 BPM 179 BPM 1:33 0.67 BPM/SEC -0.4 Lunge 2 2:25 130 BPM 188 BPM 2:45 .65 BPM/SEC -0.29

Interestingly, we see that in Lunge 2, Subject 1 actually completed the workout over 20 seconds faster. Again, looking at at the post workout surveys, Subject 1 stated he was much more tired and felt as if he struggled through the movements. It is important to note that in between the second and third round of Lunge 1, Subject 1 did physically trip over the bar and fell to the ground, in which he had to get up and continue working out. Regardless if this equates to a faster time a not, time was not a determining factor of this research subject, and the change in HR maxes is what as well as overall HR throughout the two tests. We can see that in both exercises, Subject 1 had a starting HR of right around 130, and the HRMI was extremely close to each other as well; the first 55 seconds of the two exercises were nearly identical; it was after this first minute that with the more alkaline diet, we see the heart rate begin to rise. After this first minute, if we compared the two results second by second, we see on average a 10 BPM difference, with the first test with a lower HR. After the workout, we see in Lunge 1 the PWHRD fall a little bit faster than in the second Lunge test; there is a 25% difference between the two. Again, the difference in PWHRD equates to the rate that HR falls back towards resting HR, which is used as an indicator of good health.

Looking at Subject 2, we see results that we expected to see during the Speed test; looking at the graph, we see the two lines more closely resemble each other. The biggest difference between the two workouts would be the duration: it took Subject 2 almost 2 minutes longer to complete the workout. Because of this, we see her HR to be less than the first workout as she did not work as hard during the second attempt to complete the workout. Sub 2 Workout Time Resting HR Max HR Time to Max HRMI PWHRD Lunge 1 4:55 168 BPM 188 BPM 1:49 0.57 BPM/SEC -0.66 Lunge 2 6:37 147 BPM 186 BPM 1:34 .77 BPM/SEC -0.66 There are rather large difference in the resting HR, which in turn changes Lunge 1s HRMI, which is one of the only major difference between the two results. In contrast, if we look at the PWHRD, they were exactly the same in the two attempts. Again, if the Research team would have spent as much time to drop Subject 2s resting HR, we would have seen a HRMI that would be much more equivalent as well.
