Lab #4: Cardiovascular Endurance (Bike and Treadmill Testing)


Practical Exercises: Please work in your assigned groups for these practical exercises. Each
group will have multiple people in it serving in the following roles:

1 person will be the test administrator or the tester as assigned


1 person will be the subject exercising on either a treadmill or bike as assigned
The remaining people in the group will be critiquing the tester as assigned **

** NOTE: Polar or Monark Heart Rate Monitors will be worn by all subjects. Only double-headed
stethoscopes will be used to perform these practical exercises. Therefore, if you are assigned to
critique the tester, please take turns with your other critique people listening to the testers blood
pressures during resting measurements, the actual test itself and the recovery portion of the test.
The tester will record his/her blood pressure results on the provided data collection sheet. The
critique people will record their blood pressure results on the critique sheet. All critique sheets
should be given to the tester following the completion of each exam.

Cardiovascular Endurance Questions (5 points each):


1. The RPE scale is a subjective analysis of how a client is feeling throughout the different
stages of the test. Traditionally, what is the minimum number on a 0-10 RPE scale that
may be considered indicative of a max effort on behalf of the client (2 points)? In your
own words, please write out in paragraph form how you would explain the RPE scale to
your client. Your explanation must be thorough and include the three key points that
Professor Barton is looking for in order to receive full credit for this portion of the
question (1 point will be given for each correct key point noted).

2. What are four things that must be explained to the client prior to he/she performing a
treadmill test? These four things specifically have to do with safety on the treadmill and
obtaining the most accurate cardiovascular endurance results (5 points only if all 4 things
are listed and are correct no partial credit will be given).

3.

Please describe how a client should be seated on a bike including the proper positioning
of the bike seat (2.5 points) and the handlebars (2.5 points).

4. Please list the 5 main instructions that you are going to give your client prior to properly
and safely stopping the treadmill belt at the completion of a treadmill exercise tolerance
test (1 point per correct and thorough instruction listed):
