      45

    • C.

      60

    • D.

      90

    Correct Answer
    C. 60

    The push-up test is used to measure muscle strength. This test involves performing as many push-ups as possible in a set amount of time or until exhaustion. Push-ups primarily target the muscles in the chest, shoulders, and triceps, making it an effective measure of upper body strength. By assessing the number of push-ups a person can do, their muscle strength can be evaluated.

    Which activity can strengthen my cardio-respiratory system?

    • A.

      Swimming

    • B.

      Relaxing

    • C.

      Playing catch

    • D.

      Stretching

    Correct Answer
    A. Swimming
    Explanation
    Swimming is an activity that can strengthen the cardio-respiratory system. It is a full-body workout that engages multiple muscle groups, including the heart and lungs. Swimming increases heart rate and oxygen intake, improving cardiovascular endurance. It also enhances lung capacity and efficiency. Additionally, swimming is a low-impact exercise, reducing the risk of injury to joints and muscles. Therefore, swimming is an excellent choice for improving the health and strength of the cardio-respiratory system.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    Which component of fitness involves working continuously for a long period of time?

    • A.

      Muscular endurance

    • B.

      Speed

    • C.

      Muscular strength

    • D.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    A. Muscular endurance
    Explanation
    Muscular endurance involves the ability of muscles to exert force repeatedly over an extended period of time. It is the component of fitness that allows individuals to perform activities that require sustained effort, such as long-distance running or cycling. This type of fitness is different from speed, which focuses on the ability to move quickly, and muscular strength, which relates to the maximum force a muscle can generate in a single effort. Therefore, the correct answer is muscular endurance.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Which component of fitness has to do with body fat and lean muscle?

    • A.

      Muscle strength

    • B.

      Body Composition

    • C.

      Endurance

    • D.

      Flexibility

    Correct Answer
    B. Body Composition
    Explanation
    Body composition refers to the proportion of body fat and lean muscle mass in an individual's body. It is a measure of how much fat versus muscle an individual has. This component of fitness is important because it affects overall health and fitness levels. It is crucial to maintain a healthy body composition as excessive body fat can lead to various health problems, while a higher proportion of lean muscle mass contributes to strength and physical performance. Therefore, body composition is the correct answer as it directly relates to body fat and lean muscle.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    How can I build my cardio-respiratory endurance?

    • A.

      By doing strength exercises

    • B.

      By lifting weights

    • C.

      By doing exercises that require my heart and lungs to work harder for a while

    • D.

      By improving my flexibility

    Correct Answer
    C. By doing exercises that require my heart and lungs to work harder for a while
    Explanation
    To build cardio-respiratory endurance, it is important to engage in exercises that challenge the heart and lungs to work harder for a certain period of time. These exercises, such as running, swimming, or cycling, increase the heart rate and breathing rate, improving the efficiency of the cardiovascular system. Strength exercises and lifting weights primarily focus on building muscle strength and may not have the same impact on cardio-respiratory endurance. Similarly, improving flexibility, although beneficial for overall fitness, does not specifically target the heart and lungs.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    Which one is NOT a component of fitness?

    • A.

      Balance

    • B.

      Flexibility

    • C.

      Body composition

    • D.

      Muscle strength

    Correct Answer
    A. Balance
    Explanation
    Balance is not a component of fitness because it refers to the ability to maintain equilibrium and stability, rather than physical strength or flexibility. While balance is important for overall movement and coordination, it is not considered a separate component of fitness like flexibility, body composition, and muscle strength. These components focus more on physical attributes and capabilities that contribute to overall fitness and performance.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    Good range of motion of joints is

    • A.

      Agility

    • B.

      Muscular power

    • C.

      Flexibility

    • D.

      Body composition

    Correct Answer
    C. Flexibility
    Explanation
    Flexibility refers to the ability of joints and muscles to move through their full range of motion. It is an important component of good joint health and overall physical fitness. Having a good range of motion in joints allows for better movement and prevents stiffness or injury. Agility, muscular power, and body composition are related to different aspects of physical fitness, but they do not specifically address the range of motion of joints. Therefore, flexibility is the most appropriate answer in this context.

    • D.

      When I am not too tired

    Correct Answer
    C. Every day is recommended, but it is o.k. to have one rest day.
    Explanation
    The recommended amount of physical activity should be done every day, as it promotes overall health and well-being. However, it is also acceptable to have one rest day to allow the body to recover and prevent overexertion.

    In order for my body to be at its very best, I need to

    • A.

      Give my body good fuel from the Go list

    • D.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    D. All of the above
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "All of the above." This is because in order for the body to be at its best, it needs good fuel from the Go list, which refers to consuming healthy and nutritious foods. Additionally, getting enough sleep every night is important for rest and rejuvenation of the body. Lastly, drinking plenty of water is essential for hydration and proper bodily functions. Therefore, all of these factors contribute to the body being at its very best.

    Which is an example of a moderate to vigorous physical activity?

    • A.

      Walking the dog

    • B.

      Playing soccer

    • C.

      Playing hopscotch

    • D.

      Jumping on a trampoline

    Correct Answer
    B. Playing soccer
    Explanation
    Playing soccer is an example of a moderate to vigorous physical activity because it involves running, kicking, and constant movement, which increases heart rate and breathing. This level of intensity helps to improve cardiovascular fitness, build muscular strength and endurance, and burn calories. Walking the dog, playing hopscotch, and jumping on a trampoline can be physical activities but may not reach the same level of intensity as playing soccer.
