In a professional setting, a therapist needs to know how much time to allow their client to recover from an exercise. There have been few experiments done that look at the ideal recovery time from fatigue. The purpose of this study is to find the difference in fatigue and recovery time in female college-aged athletes and non-athletes. Heart rate recovery will be improved in those with cardiovascular fitness in the first thirty seconds, but after this time period, heart rate recovery will occur at the same rate. Thirty female college students, fifteen athletes and fifteen non-athletes, were subjected to an isometric fatigue test until failure and then tested to see their recovery time. Initial data suggests that athletes do take longer to fatigue, but the non-athletes recover faster.

I teach all anatomy and physiology courses in a small, midwestern liberal arts college. I am hoping to learn how to improve my techniques for teaching this topic in the new reality of CoVid.
