The Beet Juice Experiment
Transcript of The Beet Juice Experiment
Our Anatomy & Physiology class, class of 8, conducted an experiment to determine if drinking beet juice 2.5 hours before would increase the performance in working out.
Which in this experiment, the students were instructed to use rowing machines for a distance of 2000 meters, in two different days
On the first day, they had 4 students drinking beet juice 2.5 hours before and 4 students without. On the second day, it was the vice verse, who had not drunk the beet juice had to drink it 2.5 hours before rowing and who had, not to.
In theory beet juice reduces the oxygen needed for exercise. We conducted an experiment that required everyone to row 2000 meters. The experiment was done with and without the juice to see the results. The people who took the juice were instructed to take it two hours before the experiment. Throughout this experiment we monitored speed, distance, and heart rate.
After the experiment was conduct and calculating the results, it showed a mix results but more accurately to be proven that drinking beet juice before exercising did improve the performance.
We included 8 participants with 2 trials. There were a few independent variables which included height and age. In the first trial, we had 4 participants take the placebo, and 4 participants who drank the beet Juice. The second trial the situation was switched pertaining to those who were involved with the placebo trial (no beet juice) and those who partook of the beet juice
On the first day, three people who had taken the placebo rowed for approximately 2000m while keeping track of the time to complete this distance. After the rowing those who spectated monitored the participant’s pulse and marked it down.
The process continued until all who were available could participate that day. The next day all participants were required to drink beet juice two hours prior to the experiment.
Series number one are the participants without the intake of beet juice while series number two are the participants with the intake of beet juice. As shown in the graph there is a small average difference of 73 seconds improvement in performance.
Series number one are the participants without the intake of beet juice ,
while series number two are participants with the intake of beet juice. The difference in pulse rate level increased by the average of 3.25 in the second series .
Series number one are the participants
without the intake of beet juice while series number two are participants with the intake of beet juice. The average difference between the two are 69 seconds series number two performed exercise in less amount of time.
Series number one are the participants without the intake of beet juice , while series number two are participants with the intake of beet juice. The difference in pulse rate level increased by the average of 3.25 in the second series .
