The problem was to compare the rate and total time of recovery between the walking and the sitting method, after exercise, among boys of 11 and 12 years of age. The purpose was to determine if any significant correlation existed between the two methods of walking and sitting when used for recovery. The procedure included 5 boys, all participating in both methods, sitting and walking, after running the one hundred yard dash. Three trials of each method was taken. The heart rate was recorded, at 2 minute intervals, until complete recovery was attained. The data gathered indicated a sharp decline of pulse rate immediately after the run in the walking method, while the deceleration rate was somewhat uniform during the sitting method. The total recovery time was shorter during the walking method than during the sitting method. The plateau reached during the walking method was assumed to be the complete recovery of each subject. In correlating the two methods the Rank Order Correlation was applied and the value r indicated -.85. This implied an inverse relationship between the two methods. The subjects who recorded the shortest recovery time during the sitting method showed the longest recovery time during the walking method.
