Exercise Experiment

Independent Variable: We are changing the type of drink consumed.


Dependent Variable: What drink gives you the energy to get to the highest heart rate.
Control Variable: We keep the amount of liquid consumed, the same people will be doing the exercise,
we will drink out of the same glass, the exercise we do will be the same, we will do the exercise for the
same amount of time, we will do the exercise in the same area.

1. What question are you going to answer?


What drink gives you the most energy for the highest heart rate.
2. Why do you think this is an important topic to research? (Why does it matter? What would it
help solve?)
It will help you know what drink before you exercise so you have enough energy and to get to
the highest heart rate.
3. What is your hypothesis? (What do you think you are going to find out?)
I think that Gatorade will give us the most energy because it gives us more energy than water
and it also hydrates us too.
4. What materials will you need for your study or experiment? (Be specific amounts/sizes/cost.
Be sure you can afford it and know where they can be found or purchased. SMS cannot provide
consumable materials.)
We need Gatorade, Water, somewhere to run like a gym, and we need a timer.

5. Using numbered steps, outline the procedure for your project. How will you get your results?

Measure their heart rate and record for 15 seconds.


Give the exercisers water to drink, a full cup
Wait a minute before you start the exercise
Run laps around the gym for 2 minutes
Measure their heart rate again for 15 seconds.
Let them have a break and get their heart rate back to normal
Repeat the exercise but drink Gatorade instead

6. Discussion: If we had more time we would do more trials to get a better average because our
data is all messed up and our heart rates are all over the place so there isnt really an average.

7. Conclusion: I dont know if my hypothesis was correct or incorrect because my data was all over
the place and there isnt really an average. If we had more time and did more trials I could see if
my hypothesis was right or wrong.

Drinks that bring your heart rate up.
