    Cardiovascular adaptations to endurance training include all of the following except:

    • A.

      Increased cardiac output

    • B.

      Increase blood volume and red blood cell count

    • C.

      Improved thermoregulation

    • D.

      Increased submaximal heart rate

    • E.

      Enhanced blood flow to skeletal muscle

    Correct Answer
    D. Increased submaximal heart rate
    Explanation
    Endurance training leads to various cardiovascular adaptations that improve the efficiency of the cardiovascular system. These adaptations include increased cardiac output, which is the amount of blood pumped by the heart per minute, and increased blood volume and red blood cell count, which enhance oxygen-carrying capacity. Endurance training also improves thermoregulation by enhancing the body's ability to dissipate heat. However, increased submaximal heart rate is not a typical adaptation to endurance training. In fact, endurance training tends to decrease resting and submaximal heart rate, as the heart becomes more efficient and can pump more blood with fewer beats. Additionally, endurance training enhances blood flow to skeletal muscles, allowing for improved oxygen and nutrient delivery during exercise.

  • 4. 

    High ___________ is necessary for success in aerobic endurance events.

    Correct Answer
    Maximal Aerobic Power
    Explanation
    Maximal Aerobic Power refers to the maximum amount of oxygen that an individual can utilize during intense exercise. In aerobic endurance events, such as long-distance running or cycling, the ability to efficiently use oxygen is crucial for sustaining prolonged physical activity. Therefore, having a high Maximal Aerobic Power is necessary for success in these events as it allows the body to deliver oxygen to the muscles more effectively, delaying fatigue and improving overall performance.

  • 5. 

    _______ is a measure of the energy cost of activity at a given exercise velocity.

    Correct Answer
    Exercise Economy
    Explanation
    Exercise economy refers to the energy cost or efficiency of performing a physical activity at a specific exercise velocity. It measures how much energy is required to maintain a certain pace or movement during exercise. A person with good exercise economy can perform the same activity with less energy expenditure compared to someone with poor exercise economy. This can be influenced by factors such as biomechanics, muscle coordination, and cardiovascular fitness.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    During cycling, exercise economy can be affected by all of the following BUT:

    • A.

      Body mass size

    • B.

      Cycling velocity

    • C.

      Color of bike

    • D.

      Aerodynamic positioning.

    Correct Answer
    C. Color of bike
    Explanation
    Exercise economy refers to the efficiency with which the body utilizes oxygen and energy during exercise. Body mass size, cycling velocity, and aerodynamic positioning can all have an impact on exercise economy. However, the color of the bike does not have any direct physiological effect on exercise economy. Therefore, it is not a factor that can affect exercise economy during cycling.

    Which is not a reason that it is important to make your own program instead of using a program of current successful coaches and athletes.

    • A.

      It does not consider the strengths of your athlete

    • B.

      It may lead to development of an ineffective or harmful program

    • C.

      It does not consider the weakness of your athlete

    • D.

      It does not start on the same day as your training will

    Correct Answer
    D. It does not start on the same day as your training will
    Explanation
    The reason that it is important to make your own program instead of using a program of current successful coaches and athletes is that it may not start on the same day as your training will. This means that the program may not align with your specific training schedule and goals, making it less effective for your individual needs. It is important to design a program that takes into account your athlete's strengths, weaknesses, and training timeline to ensure optimal results and minimize the risk of ineffective or harmful training.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    Female athletes must have a different program design than male athletes of the same sport.

    Correct Answer
    False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because there is no inherent need for female athletes to have a different program design than male athletes of the same sport. While there may be some physiological and anatomical differences between males and females, these differences do not necessarily require separate program designs. The program design for athletes should be based on individual needs, goals, and capabilities rather than gender. It is important to consider factors such as strength, endurance, flexibility, and skill level when designing a program for any athlete, regardless of their gender.

      50

    • D.

      25

    • E.

      0

    Correct Answer
    B. 75
    Explanation
    Age contributes 75% of the variability of heart rate. This means that age is responsible for 75% of the differences or changes in heart rate among individuals. Other factors, such as physical activity, genetics, and overall health, may also contribute to the remaining 25% of the variability. Age is known to have a significant impact on heart rate, as it tends to increase with age due to natural physiological changes in the cardiovascular system.

    Rate this question:

  • 14. 

    What is the age-predicted maximum heart rate of a 45 year old male who weighs 220 lbs with a resting heart rate of 65 beats/min?

    Correct Answer
    175
    Explanation
    The age-predicted maximum heart rate can be estimated using the formula 220 - age. In this case, the age of the individual is 45 years old. Therefore, the estimated maximum heart rate would be 220 - 45 = 175 beats per minute. The weight and resting heart rate of the individual are not relevant in determining the age-predicted maximum heart rate.

    Rate this question:

  • 15. 

    What is the target heart rate range of the 45 year old male who weighs 220 lbs with a resting heart rate of 65 beats/min who is going to work out at 50-60% of functional capacity?
