    In the F.I.T.T Principle, the F stands for what? 

    Explanation
    The F in the F.I.T.T Principle stands for Frequency. Frequency refers to how often a person engages in a particular exercise or physical activity. It is an important aspect of designing a fitness program as it determines the number of times a person should exercise in a week. The frequency of exercise can vary based on individual goals, fitness level, and time availability.

     In the F.I.T.T Principle, the I stands for what?

    Explanation
    The correct answer is Intensity. In the F.I.T.T Principle, the I stands for Intensity. Intensity refers to the level of difficulty or effort exerted during a workout. It is an important factor to consider when designing a fitness program as it determines the effectiveness and potential results of the exercise. By adjusting the intensity, individuals can challenge their bodies and progress towards their fitness goals.

      Temperature and Trim

    Correct Answer
    B. Time and Type
    Explanation
    The F.I.T.T principle is a guideline for creating effective exercise programs. The T's in the F.I.T.T principle stand for Time and Type. Time refers to the duration of the exercise session, while Type refers to the specific type or mode of exercise being performed. This means that when designing a workout program, one should consider both the amount of time spent exercising and the specific type of exercise being done to ensure optimal results.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    Which of the following is NOT a component of Fitness?

    • A.

      Cardio Endurance

    • B.

      Muscular Strength

    • C.

      Personal Hygene

    • D.

      Body Composition

    • E.

      Flexibility

    Correct Answer
    C. Personal Hygene
    Explanation
    Personal hygiene is not a component of fitness because it refers to practices and habits that promote cleanliness and prevent disease, rather than physical abilities or attributes related to fitness. Fitness components typically include cardiovascular endurance, muscular strength, body composition, and flexibility, which are all directly related to physical fitness and performance.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Is the ability of the heart, lungs and vascular system to deliver oxygen-rich blood to working muscles during sustained phyysical activity. 

    • A.

      Flexibility

    • B.

      Muscular Endurance

    • C.

      Body Compostion

    • D.

      Cardiovascular Endurance

    • E.

      Muscular Strength

    Correct Answer
    D. Cardiovascular Endurance
    Explanation
    Cardiovascular endurance refers to the ability of the heart, lungs, and vascular system to deliver oxygen-rich blood to working muscles during sustained physical activity. This means that the body can efficiently transport oxygen to the muscles, allowing them to continue working for extended periods without fatigue. It is an important component of overall fitness and is necessary for activities such as running, swimming, and cycling.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    Is the amount of fat in the body compared to the amount of lean mass (muscle, bones, organs etc.). 

    • A.

      Cardiovascular Endurance

    • B.

      Body Composition

    • C.

      Flexibility

    • D.

      Muscle Endurance

    • E.

      Muscle Strength

    Correct Answer
    B. Body Composition
    Explanation
    Body composition refers to the proportion of fat in the body compared to the proportion of lean mass, which includes muscles, bones, and organs. It is an important aspect of overall fitness and health. Having a healthy body composition means having a lower percentage of body fat and a higher percentage of lean mass. This can be achieved through a combination of regular exercise, proper nutrition, and maintaining a balanced lifestyle.

  • 9. 

     Is the degree to which an individual muscle will lengthen.

    • A.

      Flexibility

    • B.

      Muscle Endurance

    • C.

      Cardiovascular Endurance

    • D.

      Body Composition

    • E.

      Muscular Strength

    Correct Answer
    A. Flexibility
    Explanation
    Flexibility refers to the degree to which an individual muscle will lengthen. It is the ability of a muscle or group of muscles to move a joint through its complete range of motion. Flexibility is important for maintaining good posture, preventing injuries, and improving overall physical performance. It can be improved through regular stretching exercises and activities that promote joint mobility.

    What is an example of Frequency in cardiovascular endurance 

    • A.

      Target Heart Rate

    • B.

      Free Weights

    • C.

      3-5 days a week

    • D.

      30 Minutes

    Correct Answer
    C. 3-5 days a week
    Explanation
    Frequency in cardiovascular endurance refers to how often an individual engages in cardiovascular exercise. The answer "3-5 days a week" is an example of frequency because it suggests that the individual should engage in cardiovascular exercise for 3-5 days every week. This frequency is commonly recommended for maintaining cardiovascular health and improving endurance.

  • 11. 

    How do you improve muscle Strength? 

    • A.

      Low Repititions, high resistance (weights),

    • B.

      High Repetitions, low resistance (weights)

    Correct Answer
    A. Low Repititions, high resistance (weights),
    Explanation
    Low repetitions with high resistance (weights) is the correct answer for improving muscle strength. This is because when you perform exercises with heavier weights and fewer repetitions, it puts more stress on your muscles, causing them to adapt and grow stronger. This type of training is known as strength training and it helps to increase muscle mass and overall strength. On the other hand, high repetitions with low resistance may be more suitable for endurance training rather than building muscle strength.

    Rate this question:

  • 12. 

    If I was working out on the bench press and I was doing 150 pounds 4 times, what component of fitness was I working

    Correct Answer
    Muscular Strength
    Explanation
    The question states that the person was working out on the bench press and was lifting 150 pounds for 4 repetitions. This indicates that they were performing a strength training exercise, specifically targeting their muscles' ability to exert force against resistance. Muscular strength is the component of fitness that focuses on the maximum amount of force a muscle or group of muscles can generate. Therefore, the correct answer is muscular strength.

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Cardiovascular Exercising
    B. Strength Training
    C. Exercise Corretly
    D. Progress Gradually
    E. Hydrate
    F. Adequate Sleep
    Explanation
    The correct answer includes all of the options listed: Cardiovascular Exercising, Strength Training, Exercise Correctly, Progress Gradually, Hydrate, and Adequate Sleep. These are all safety concerns because they are important factors to consider in order to prevent injuries and ensure a safe and effective workout. Cardiovascular exercise and strength training can put strain on the body, so it is important to exercise correctly and progress gradually to avoid overexertion or muscle imbalances. Hydration is crucial to prevent dehydration and maintain proper bodily function during exercise. Adequate sleep is necessary for muscle recovery and overall health.

    Rate this question:

  • 14. 

    What is the intensity for flexibility?

    Correct Answer(s)
    Stretch until you feel the pull, not pain
    Explanation
    This answer suggests that the intensity for flexibility should be determined by the sensation of feeling a pull in the muscles being stretched, rather than experiencing pain. This indicates that while stretching, one should push their muscles to a point where they feel a gentle pull or tension, but not to the extent where it becomes painful. This approach ensures that flexibility is improved without causing any harm or injury to the muscles.

    Rate this question:

  • 15. 

    What is a normal resting heart rate range?

    • A.

      35-50 BPM

    • B.

      50-85 BPM

    • C.

      100-120 BPM

    Correct Answer
    B. 50-85 BPM
    Explanation
    A normal resting heart rate range is typically between 50-85 beats per minute (BPM). This means that when a person is at rest, their heart beats between 50 and 85 times in one minute. A resting heart rate within this range is considered to be healthy and indicates that the heart is functioning properly. It is important to note that individual variations can occur, and factors such as age, fitness level, and overall health can affect a person's resting heart rate.
