    Each Pilates exercise should be introduced and built from a basic to an intermediate level.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement is suggesting that when practicing Pilates, it is important to start with basic exercises and gradually progress to intermediate exercises. This approach allows individuals to build a strong foundation and gradually challenge their bodies as they become more experienced and proficient in the practice. By starting with basic exercises and gradually increasing the difficulty level, individuals can ensure proper form, technique, and prevent the risk of injury.

    Overly vigorous activity should be avoided in the 3rd trimester (last 3 months) when most pregnant women have a decreased tolerance for weight-bearing exercise.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    During the third trimester of pregnancy, most women experience a decreased tolerance for weight-bearing exercise. This means that their bodies may not be able to handle overly vigorous activity, which could potentially put too much strain on their joints and muscles. Therefore, it is advised to avoid such activities during this time to ensure the safety and well-being of both the mother and the baby.

  • 5. 

    Pregnant women have a lower rate of “tidal flow” in and out of the lungs and a lower rate of oxygen consumption.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Pregnant women actually have a higher rate of "tidal flow" in and out of the lungs and a higher rate of oxygen consumption. This is because during pregnancy, the body needs to supply oxygen to both the mother and the developing fetus, so the respiratory system works harder to meet this increased demand. Therefore, the statement that pregnant women have a lower rate of tidal flow and oxygen consumption is incorrect.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    Recommendations for pregnant women includes: (Select three)

    • A.

    • C.

      They should be encouraged to self-monitor at all times, keeping an eye on temperature, hydration, rest periods, muscle and joint strain and calorie intake.

    • D.

      They should not perform exercises in the supine position after the first trimester, or be required to stand for long periods.

    • E.

      They should perform exercises which require sudden changes in position.

    Correct Answer(s)
    B. Exercise should begin at a modest level, avoiding pain, shortness of breath and fatigue.
    C. They should be encouraged to self-monitor at all times, keeping an eye on temperature, hydration, rest periods, muscle and joint strain and calorie intake.
    D. They should not perform exercises in the supine position after the first trimester, or be required to stand for long periods.
    Explanation
    The recommendations for pregnant women include starting exercise at a modest level to avoid pain, shortness of breath, and fatigue. They should also be encouraged to self-monitor various factors such as temperature, hydration, rest periods, muscle and joint strain, and calorie intake. Additionally, pregnant women should avoid exercises in the supine position after the first trimester and should not be required to stand for long periods.

    Muscle strength declines by 25% per decade after age fifty, and by 30% per decade after age 70. 65% of women aged over 70 cannot lift 10lb (4.5kg).

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because it states that 65% of women aged over 70 cannot lift 10lb (4.5kg), which contradicts the information provided in the question. The question states that muscle strength declines by 30% per decade after age 70, but it does not specify the extent of decline in muscle strength for women aged over 70. Therefore, we cannot conclude that 65% of women aged over 70 cannot lift 10lb (4.5kg) based on the given information.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    As we age, our pelvic floor muscles become weaker, and studies show that the pelvic floor and deep abdominal muscles work together to help keep the lower back healthy.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    As we age, our pelvic floor muscles naturally weaken. Research has shown that the pelvic floor muscles and deep abdominal muscles collaborate to maintain the health of the lower back. This implies that if our pelvic floor muscles are weak, it can potentially lead to lower back problems. Therefore, the statement is true.
