Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    This is just a sample of embedding a quiz into the website. I'm not tied to anything here in particular. I tried to make this as "clean" as possible by pulling verbiage for the questions directly from the article. This made it easy to ask true/false questions. The question order should be randomized to prevent one student from telling the answer order to another (i.e. check all - true - true - false - true). Students should score 100% for this short 5 question quiz, with questions coming straight from the article, before moving on.  A message to the students after they reach 100% Great job! Hopefully, at this point, you recognize that muscular fitness, specifically,  higher levels of strength, are associated with lowering risk factors for some chronic diseases that are significant problems in our society today. In addition, regular resistance training not only improves muscle and bone strength and mass/density, but may also prevent and treat the metabolic syndrome (click this link to find out more about this) and prevent or improve depression, anxiety, and "energy" levels. 

  • 2. 

    Which of the following are not associated with higher levels of strength? Choose all the appropriate options.

    • A.

      Better cardiometabolic risk factor profiles 

    • B.

      Lower risk of all-cause mortality 

    • C.

      Fewer cardiovascular disease events 

    • D.

      Lower risk of developing functional limitations and other nonfatal diseases 

    • E.

      None of these are associated with higher levels of strength

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Better cardiometabolic risk factor profiles 
    B. Lower risk of all-cause mortality 
    C. Fewer cardiovascular disease events 
    D. Lower risk of developing functional limitations and other nonfatal diseases 
    Explanation
    Higher levels of strength are associated with better cardiometabolic risk factor profiles, lower risk of all-cause mortality, fewer cardiovascular disease events, and lower risk of developing functional limitations and other nonfatal diseases.

    Regular participation in resistance training can improve blood pressure in persons with prehypertension or stage 1 hypertension (chronic high blood pressure).

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Regular participation in resistance training can improve blood pressure in persons with prehypertension or stage 1 hypertension. This is because resistance training helps strengthen the muscles, including the heart, which in turn improves cardiovascular health. By engaging in regular resistance training, individuals can reduce their blood pressure levels and potentially prevent or manage hypertension. Therefore, the statement is true.

    Although muscular fitness has shown positive improvements for many health markers, the research does not show improvements in blood glucose or insulin sensitivity from regular participation in resistance training.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement implies that regular participation in resistance training does not lead to improvements in blood glucose or insulin sensitivity. However, this is not true. Research has shown that resistance training can indeed improve blood glucose control and insulin sensitivity. Therefore, the correct answer is False.

    Exercise that promotes muscle strength and mass also effectively increase bone mass and bone strength of the specific bones stressed. 

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Exercise that promotes muscle strength and mass can effectively increase bone mass and bone strength of the specific bones stressed. This is because when muscles contract during exercise, they pull on the bones, which in turn stimulates bone cells to produce new bone tissue. This process, known as bone remodeling, helps to increase bone density and strength. Therefore, engaging in exercises that target muscle strength and mass can have a positive impact on bone health.

    Some evidence shows that resistance training may prevent and improve depression and anxiety, increase "energy" levels, and decrease fatigue, however further study of this effect is required. 

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Resistance training has been found to have positive effects on mental health, including preventing and improving depression and anxiety. It can also increase energy levels and decrease fatigue. However, more research is needed to fully understand and confirm these effects. Therefore, the statement is true.
