Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    The anterior deltoid is in what part of the body?

    • A.

      Hand

    • B.

      Upper Leg

    • C.

      Shoulder

    • D.

      Chest

    Correct Answer
    C. Shoulder
    Explanation
    The anterior deltoid is a muscle located in the shoulder. It is one of the three heads of the deltoid muscle, which is responsible for shoulder abduction and flexion. The anterior deltoid specifically assists in flexing the shoulder joint and bringing the arm forward. Therefore, the correct answer is shoulder.

    How do you stretch your posterior deltoid muscle

    • A.

      Bend your knee

    • B.

      Point your toes

    • C.

      Hold your arm across your chest

    • D.

      Turn your head to the side

    Correct Answer
    C. Hold your arm across your chest
    Explanation
    To stretch your posterior deltoid muscle, you should hold your arm across your chest. This position helps to stretch the muscle by pulling it in the opposite direction, promoting flexibility and relieving tension. It is important to maintain proper form and hold the stretch for a sufficient amount of time to effectively target the posterior deltoid muscle.

  • 3. 

    When doing the shoulder flexibility test stretch, which muscle are you stretching?

    • A.

      Latissimus Dorsi

    • B.

      Deltoid

    • C.

      Biceps

    • D.

      Hamstrings

    Correct Answer
    A. Latissimus Dorsi
    Explanation
    During the shoulder flexibility test stretch, the muscle being stretched is the Latissimus Dorsi. This muscle is located in the back and is responsible for shoulder adduction, extension, and internal rotation. It is commonly targeted in exercises that involve pulling movements, such as rows and pull-ups. Stretching the Latissimus Dorsi helps improve shoulder mobility and flexibility.

    What muscle are you stretching when you do the runner's lunge stretch?

    • A.

      Biceps

    • B.

      Rectus Femoris

    • C.

      Hamstrings

    • D.

      Gluteus Maximus

    Correct Answer
    B. Rectus Femoris
    Explanation
    The runner's lunge stretch primarily stretches the Rectus Femoris muscle. This muscle is one of the four quadriceps muscles located in the front of the thigh. It is responsible for flexing the hip and extending the knee. When performing the runner's lunge stretch, the front leg is extended forward while the back leg is extended backward, causing a stretch in the Rectus Femoris muscle. This stretch helps to improve flexibility in the hip and thigh area.

    How do you stretch your quadricep muscle?

    • A.

      Put your arm over your head

    • B.

      Hold your foot behind you next to your bottom

    • C.

      Bend over and touch your toes

    • D.

      Spread your feet apart and lean to the side

    Correct Answer
    B. Hold your foot behind you next to your bottom
    Explanation
    To stretch your quadricep muscle, you need to hold your foot behind you next to your bottom. This position allows for a deep stretch in the front of your thigh, targeting the quadricep muscle. By holding your foot and pulling it towards your bottom, you are effectively lengthening and stretching the quadricep muscle. This stretch can help improve flexibility and reduce tightness in the quadricep area.

    Where are the adductor muscles in your legs?

    • A.

      On the front of your thigh

    • B.

      On the back of your thigh

    • C.

      On the inside of your thigh

    • D.

      On the outside of your thigh

    Correct Answer
    C. On the inside of your thigh
    Explanation
    The adductor muscles are located on the inside of your thigh. These muscles are responsible for bringing your legs together and are important for movements such as walking, running, and jumping. They help stabilize the hip joint and play a crucial role in maintaining balance and proper alignment of the lower body.

  • 7. 

    Why do we run and do jumping jacks before we stretch?

    • A.

      Mr. Davolt likes to torture us.

    • B.

      To warm up our muscles to prepare them to stretch.

    • C.

      Just to fill time.

    Correct Answer
    B. To warm up our muscles to prepare them to stretch.
    Explanation
    Running and doing jumping jacks before stretching helps to warm up our muscles. This is important because warm muscles are more flexible and less prone to injury. By increasing blood flow and raising the body temperature, these activities prepare the muscles for the stretching exercises that follow. This warm-up also helps to improve overall performance during the stretching routine.

    Why do we do curl-ups?

    • A.

      To make the muscular endurance of our abdominal muscles better.

    • B.

      To test the muscular strength of our biceps.

    • C.

      To give us a rest after all that other exercise.

    Correct Answer
    A. To make the muscular endurance of our abdominal muscles better.
    Explanation
    Curl-ups are done to improve the muscular endurance of our abdominal muscles. Muscular endurance refers to the ability of a muscle or group of muscles to sustain repeated contractions over an extended period of time. By performing curl-ups, which involve repeatedly flexing the abdominal muscles, we are specifically targeting and strengthening these muscles, allowing them to endure more prolonged periods of activity. This can be beneficial for various activities that require core stability and strength, such as sports, daily activities, and maintaining proper posture.

    What part of the health related components of fitness is being tested with the push up test?

    • A.

      Cardiovascular Endurance

    • B.

      Muscular Endurance

    • C.

      Muscular Strength

    • D.

      Flexibility

    Correct Answer
    C. Muscular Strength
    Explanation
    The push-up test primarily assesses muscular strength. Muscular strength refers to the ability of muscles to exert force against resistance. During a push-up, the muscles in the chest, shoulders, and arms are engaged to lift and lower the body. The test measures how many push-ups a person can perform correctly, indicating their level of muscular strength in the upper body. Cardiovascular endurance, on the other hand, relates to the ability of the heart and lungs to deliver oxygen to the muscles during prolonged physical activity. While cardiovascular endurance is important for overall fitness, it is not specifically targeted or tested in the push-up test.
