    The formula or process we use for finding your maximal heart rate is______________.

    • A.

      Max HR=age+ 220

    • B.

      Max HR = 220-age

    • C.

      Max HR=60% (220-age)

    Correct Answer
    B. Max HR = 220-age
    Explanation
    The correct answer is Max HR = 220-age. This formula is commonly used to estimate an individual's maximal heart rate. It suggests that the maximal heart rate decreases as age increases. By subtracting the age from 220, we can get an approximate value for the maximal heart rate.

    Atherosclerosis is __________________.

    • A.

      A form of bad breath caused by irregular heart beats.

    • B.

      A type of diabetes that attacks the muscle of the heart.

    • C.

      A condition in which an artery wall thickens as the result of a build-up of fatty materials such as cholesterol.

    Correct Answer
    C. A condition in which an artery wall thickens as the result of a build-up of fatty materials such as cholesterol.
    Explanation
    Atherosclerosis is a condition in which an artery wall thickens as a result of a build-up of fatty materials such as cholesterol. It is not related to bad breath or diabetes attacking the heart muscle. This build-up of fatty materials can lead to the narrowing and hardening of the arteries, restricting blood flow and potentially leading to various cardiovascular diseases such as heart attacks and strokes.

    Rate this question:

  • 15. 

    Regular physical activity helps improve your cardiovascular fitness by reducing LDL levels and increasing HDL levels.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Regular physical activity helps improve cardiovascular fitness by reducing LDL (low-density lipoprotein) levels, commonly known as "bad" cholesterol, and increasing HDL (high-density lipoprotein) levels, known as "good" cholesterol. LDL cholesterol can build up in the arteries, leading to blockages and increasing the risk of heart disease. On the other hand, HDL cholesterol helps remove LDL cholesterol from the arteries, reducing the risk of heart disease. Therefore, engaging in regular physical activity can indeed improve cardiovascular fitness by positively impacting cholesterol levels.

  • 16. 

    A resting heart rate of 90 beats/min is very good for a 15 year old.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    A resting heart rate of 90 beats/min is not considered very good for a 15-year-old. The normal range for a resting heart rate in adolescents is typically between 60-100 beats/min. A heart rate of 90 beats/min falls within the normal range, but it is towards the higher end. A lower resting heart rate is generally associated with better cardiovascular fitness, so a heart rate closer to 60-70 beats/min would be considered more optimal for a 15-year-old. Therefore, the statement is false.

    Rate this question:

  • 17. 

    There are 11 parts of fitness, but the most important is cardiovascular fitness because those who have it live longer on average.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Cardiovascular fitness is considered the most important aspect of fitness because it directly affects the health of the heart and lungs. It refers to the ability of the cardiovascular system to efficiently deliver oxygen and nutrients to the muscles during physical activity. By improving cardiovascular fitness, individuals can reduce the risk of developing various cardiovascular diseases and improve their overall health. Numerous studies have shown that individuals with good cardiovascular fitness tend to live longer on average, making it a crucial component of overall fitness and well-being. Therefore, the statement is true.
