Research Lab 10/27 - 10/29 (4 hours)
We are still helping with the caffeine study in the lab. We are watching Dr. Black and Kori perform the tests. I helped some with the rate of percieved exertion chart as well as taking off and reapplying the nose piece to the person doing the test. This only occurs during submax tests though where they have to ride for a straight 30 mins. I did get to see one max test with a girl who absolutely rocked it. She did such an awesome job and pushed herself to the max. It was so interesting because from the outside you would in no way think that this girl was very athletic or physically fit, but when she got on that bike she had some mean determination and just went to town. I also help clean and reassemble all the equipment for the tests. I enjoy helping in the research lab.
