Physiology Quizzes & Trivia

Our bodies may have the same anatomy, but some of us have a hard time getting fit through exercises and being that you are planning to be a physiologist you need to understand the human body and how it reacts to a particular exercise. Below is an exercise physiology review quiz to see how much you understood. Take it up and see how good you do.


Questions and Answers

    Heavy resistance training and straining type exercises:
    • A. 

      Decrease blood pressure dramatically

    • B. 

      Increases the risk for individuals with existing hypertension or CAD

    • C. 

      Increases blood pressure dramatically because it compresses peripheral arterioles

    • D. 

      Both b and c

  • 2. 
    A thrombus:
    • A. 

      Can cause chest pain

    • B. 

      Severely impair normal heart unction

    • C. 

      Can be a form of a heart attack called myocardial infarction

  • 6. 
    Blood pressure is equal to:
    • A. 

      Cardiac output divided by heart rate

    • B. 

      Cardiac output multiplied by stroke volume

    • C. 

      Cardiac output multiplied by total peripheral resistance

    • D. 

      Blood pressure divided by cardiac output
