    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    An athlete weighing in above the upper limit for a weight class will be moved to the next heavier weight class.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    If an athlete weighs above the upper limit for a weight class, it means that they exceed the maximum weight allowed for that particular class. In such cases, it is common practice to move the athlete to the next heavier weight class, as they would not be eligible to compete in the current weight class. This ensures fairness in competition and prevents athletes from having an unfair advantage due to their weight. Therefore, the statement "An athlete weighing in above the upper limit for a weight class will be moved to the next heavier weight class" is true.

  • 4. 

    Failure to bend the knees and lower the body until the top surface of the legs at the hip joint are lower than the top of the knees will result in an unsuccessful squat attempt.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    If a person does not bend their knees and lower their body enough during a squat, their legs will not reach a position where the top surface of the legs at the hip joint is lower than the top of the knees. This is the correct technique for a successful squat. Therefore, the statement is true.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    Weight may be reduced after a lifter has attempted to perform a lift with the announced weight.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The weight cannot be reduced after the lifter has attempted to perform a lift with the announced weight.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    During a successful bench press, downward movement of the bar in the course of its being pressed out is acceptable.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    During a successful bench press, the bar should be moved upward, not downward. The downward movement of the bar in the course of its being pressed out is not acceptable and would indicate an incorrect technique. The correct technique involves pushing the bar upward to complete the lift successfully. Therefore, the statement is false.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    At the completion of a successful dead lift, the lifter must stand erect with shoulders back and knees locked.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement is true because in a deadlift, the lifter must finish the lift by standing up straight with their shoulders pulled back and their knees fully extended. This position ensures that the lifter has completed the lift successfully and has fully engaged their muscles. Failing to stand erect with shoulders back and knees locked can result in an incomplete lift and potential injury.
