Being prepared for setbacks means understanding that they are a normal part of the training process and not getting discouraged by them. It also involves having a mindset to overcome setbacks, adjusting training plans if necessary, and staying consistent and committed to the training program.

    Some joints allow a wide ROM while others are only designed to move forward and backward.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Some joints in the body, such as the shoulder and hip joints, are classified as ball-and-socket joints, which allow for a wide range of motion (ROM) in multiple directions. On the other hand, hinge joints, like the knee and elbow joints, primarily allow movement in a forward and backward direction. Therefore, the statement that some joints allow a wide ROM while others are only designed to move forward and backward is true.

    Adults who have high levels of cardio-respiratory endurance tend to have 70-80%  slow twitch fibers.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Adults who have high levels of cardio-respiratory endurance tend to have 70-80% slow twitch fibers. This means that individuals with high levels of cardio-respiratory endurance have a higher proportion of slow twitch muscle fibers in their muscles. Slow twitch fibers are responsible for endurance activities and are better suited for long-duration exercises such as running or cycling. Therefore, it is true that adults with high levels of cardio-respiratory endurance tend to have a higher percentage of slow twitch fibers.

    The amount of force a muscle or a muscle group can exert against an opposing force is ______________________.

    • A.

      Muscular strength

    • B.

      Absolute muscular strength

    • C.

      Relative muscular strength

      Resistance training

    Correct Answer
    A. Muscular strength
    Explanation
    Muscular strength refers to the maximum amount of force that a muscle or muscle group can generate against an opposing force. It represents the overall power and ability of the muscles to exert force. This measure is independent of factors such as body weight or size, making it an absolute measure of strength. Relative muscular strength, on the other hand, takes into account body weight or size, providing a ratio of strength to body mass. Resistance training is a form of exercise that aims to increase muscular strength through the use of resistance or weights.
