    _________________ test use relatively slow movement speeds so they reflect low-speed strength.

    • A.

      Maximal muscular strength

    • B.

      Anaerobic muscular power

    • C.

      Maximum muscular power

    • D.

      Aerobic capacity

    Correct Answer
    A. Maximal muscular strength
    Explanation
    This question is asking for an explanation of why the test mentioned in the statement reflects low-speed strength. Maximal muscular strength refers to the maximum force a muscle or group of muscles can generate in a single contraction. This type of strength is typically tested through exercises that involve slow and controlled movements, such as lifting heavy weights. Since the test mentioned in the statement uses relatively slow movement speeds, it aligns with the concept of maximal muscular strength.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    Examples of Anaerobic or Maximum Muscular Power (High-Speed Strength) assessments involve all of the following except:

    • A.

      Measuring 1 RM of Power Clean

    • B.

      Vertical jump height

    • C.

      Time to sprint up a staircase

    • D.

      Measuring 1 RM of Bench press

    Correct Answer
    D. Measuring 1 RM of Bench press
    Explanation
    The question is asking for an example of an assessment that does not involve measuring the 1 RM of Bench press. The correct answer is "measuring 1 RM of Bench press." This means that all the other options - measuring 1 RM of Power Clean, vertical jump height, and time to sprint up a staircase - are examples of assessments that involve Anaerobic or Maximum Muscular Power.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    ______ stored in the active muscles is the primary energy source for low and high speed muscular strength tests.

    Correct Answer
    ATP
    Explanation
    ATP (adenosine triphosphate) is the correct answer. ATP is a molecule that stores and provides energy for cellular processes, including muscle contraction. During low and high-speed muscular strength tests, ATP is broken down to release energy, which is used by the muscles to perform the required tasks. As the primary energy source, ATP plays a crucial role in providing the necessary energy for muscle strength and power during physical activities.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    Local maximal endurance is the ability of certain muscles or groups of muscles to perform under submaximal resistance, which is not an example:

    • A.

      Maximum number of push ups in a minute

    • B.

      Maximum number of push ups in 2 minutes with 10 seconds rest after each 30 seconds

    • C.

      Maximum number of sit ups in 2 minutes

    • D.

      Maximum number of sit ups in 30 seconds

    Correct Answer
    B. Maximum number of push ups in 2 minutes with 10 seconds rest after each 30 seconds
    Explanation
    This answer is correct because the other options all involve performing the maximum number of repetitions within a specific time frame. However, the option "Maximum number of push ups in 2 minutes with 10 seconds rest after each 30 seconds" includes short rest periods, which allow the muscles to partially recover and therefore do not represent submaximal resistance.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    Aerobic capacity can be estimated by performance in which activity?

    • A.

      100 meter dash

    • B.

      300 meter hurdles

    • C.

      400 meter dash

    • D.

      Mile run

    Correct Answer
    D. Mile run
    Explanation
    Aerobic capacity refers to the ability of the body to take in, transport, and utilize oxygen during exercise. It is a measure of cardiovascular fitness and endurance. The mile run is a longer distance compared to the other activities listed, which require more anaerobic energy systems. Therefore, performance in the mile run can provide a better estimation of aerobic capacity as it requires sustained effort over a longer duration, thus engaging the aerobic energy system to a greater extent.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    __________ is the ability to start, stop, and change direction in a controlled manner

    Correct Answer
    Agility
    Explanation
    Agility refers to the ability to start, stop, and change direction in a controlled manner. This means being able to quickly and efficiently move one's body in response to different stimuli or situations. Agility is an important skill in various sports and activities that require quick movements, such as basketball, soccer, and martial arts. It involves a combination of balance, coordination, speed, and reflexes, allowing individuals to move fluidly and adapt to changing circumstances.

    • D.

      Try different clothes and shoes to get the best test results

    Correct Answer
    A. Weather, floor surface, equipment,
    Explanation
    The answer is weather, floor surface, and equipment because these factors can have a significant impact on the test results. If these circumstances are not consistent from test to test, it can introduce variables that may affect the reliability of the results. For example, if one test is conducted on a rainy day and another test is conducted on a sunny day, the weather conditions can affect the performance of the athlete. Similarly, different floor surfaces or equipment can alter the athlete's performance, making it difficult to compare the results accurately.
