  • Six subjects, three well-conditioned and three poorly conditioned, performed the Harvard Step Test.
    The well-conditioned subjects had a quicker heart rate recovery of 27 bpm after exercising compared to the poorly-conditioned subjects heart rate recovery of 20 bpm

  • The well-conditioned subjects were physically fit and were able to regulate blood pressure and pulse after exercise better than the poorly-conditioned subjects

  • Cardiovascular health is important because it can indicate the presence of cardiovascular diseases. Testing blood pressure and pulse after exercise in well-conditioned and poorly-conditioned subjects indicate the health advantages and differences seen in cardiovascular health based on lifestyle choices and habits.
