I'm having problems coming up with an idea in which I can actually measure what the variables I need for equations. Also it needs to be able to relate ideas from calc. II. Any ideas would be a huge help.

You could explore rotational motion. Study the theory of the motion of a rigid body:

And then generalize this to the case of a gymnast whose moment of inertia tensor will be time dependent.
