Pulse rate before the exercise.

1st attempt 2nd attempt 3rd attempt
69 77 80

After the exercise:

1st attempt 2nd attempt 3rd attempt
115 110 108

The pulse rate increases each time due to the acknowledgment of the pulse and I therefore was able to get more accurate results.

Breathing rate before the exercise:

1st attempt 2nd attempt 3rd attempt
28 24 19

After the exercise:

1st attempt 2nd attempt 3rd attempt
45 39 31

Before the exercise the breathing decreased when I was counting how many breaths I can take in a minute. However whilst breathing, my breathing rate was not normal but it was essential for me to keep the results reliable.

Temperature before the exercise:

After the exercise, we then took the measurements of our pulse, breathing rate and temperature too to see the change. Once we had completed this the first time, we then did it 2 other times, so in total 3 time so that the data was reliable and trustworthy. (Stretch, B., & Whitehouse, M. (2007).

Also as none of us had any allergies, we therefore had no need to take any medication whilst the exercise was taking place. Before the exercise had taken place me and my partner were both calm and relaxed, however one the exercise had been undertaken we then started to breathe very heavily and also consumed a full water bottle due to dehydration.

The pulse can be taken on two pressure points. One on the neck this is called carotid artery however it is sometimes quiet hard to find, so people measure from the wrist, the Radial artery, with two fingers as the thumb as a pulse but is uneven and can affect accuracy. The average heart rate for 15-20 year olds is 122-163 bmp. Exercise causes the blood to pump faster, making our intake for oxygen more and temperature rise, which creates sweat.
The results of my pulse rate, breathing rate and temperature before and after the exercise are down below.

Pulse rate before the exercise.

After the exercise:

1st attempt 2nd attempt 3rd attempt
36.9 36.9 36.9

The temperature was relatively constant before and after the exercise.
