1. It was very difficult to use the same technique the whole experiment because I could only use one hand the whole time. Another reason it was hard was because I could only use two fingers to hold the closespin.
2. Before I started the experiment my hands and fingers felt normal. They didn't hurt or burn. During the experiment my hands were hurting really bad and they were sore. After the experiment my hands didn't hurt as bad because I wasn't squeezing the closepin anymore.
3. I don't think my graph showed a pattern but it was high in the beginning, low in the middle, than high at the end.
4. These patterns told me that at the beginning I was feeling that this wasn't going to be hard so my amount of squeezes was pretty high. Then when it went down it showed that it was pretty hard. When it went back up it showed that I was glad that it was almost over so I tried harder.
5. I think my results are reliable because it shows how at first it's easy then it gets really hard, and then it gets a tiny bit easier because you know its almost over. It shows it in my graph because it's kind of shaped like a V.
6. My hand strength changed after this experiment because I was squeezing the closepin so much. Even though my hands felt tired at the end, they felt stronger.
7. I think my muscle cells get oxygen, nutrients, and water after you eat/drink. After you swallow the food/drink it travels throughout your body and gives your cells energy.
8. I think if you had a longer break in between every trial then the amount of pain/tiredness would of gone down. I think this because we only had 10-15 seconds in between trials so we didn't get to rest.
9. I think if you experience muscle fatigue you should stop doing what is making your muscle tired and relax. You should ice it too.
