PART III CARDIO GRAPH

Before participating in the activities, record your ambient heart rate. Now you will participate in various activities listed on the graph for 1 minute. After
each activity, quickly locate your pulse and count beats for 6 seconds. Multiply by 10 and chart the number on your graph.

Ambient Heart Rate: How fast your heart is beating while you are awake and sitting/standing.
Maximum Heart Rate: The fastest your heart can beat without collapse is called your Maximum Heart Rate.

The two main locations for taking a pulse are the ____________ artery and the _____________ artery.

What is your Ambient Heart Rate? _________

Determining Your Target Heart Rate Zone

PART I:
Objective: Students will determine their Target Heart Rate Zone by using Karvonen’s
Formula. Cardiorespiratory endurance will be maintained or improved if the heart
rate during exercise is between the low intensity and high intensity.

Karvonen’s Formula to determine THRZ:

A. 220 – ________ = __________________________


(your age) (Maximum Heart Rate or MHR)

B. _____ X 65% = _______________


(MHR) (low intensity)

C. _____ X 85% = _______________


(MHR) (high intensity)

D. My Target Heart Rate Zone is _______________ to _______________


(low intensity) (high intensity)

PART II:
After completing each activity from the Cardio Graph, respond to the Reflective
Questions below.

1. Look at the pattern that developed on your graph. How do the different
activities affect your heart rate?

2. How many total minutes did you work in your Target Heart Rate Zone?

3. Look at your heart rate for jogging and for cross country skiing. Which
activity raised your heart rate higher? Why?

4. Why do you think your heart rate was higher doing the can-can than
walking?

5. Name 3 benefits to your health by exercising in your Target Heart Rate


Zone.
