Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Leg slides are beneficial for working on pelvic stabilization.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Leg slides are exercises that involve sliding one leg away from the body while keeping the pelvis stable. This exercise specifically targets the muscles responsible for pelvic stabilization, such as the glutes, hip flexors, and core muscles. By performing leg slides, individuals can improve their pelvic stability, which is important for maintaining proper posture, preventing lower back pain, and enhancing overall movement efficiency. Therefore, the statement that leg slides are beneficial for working on pelvic stabilization is true.

    Foam rollers can be used for improving muscle balance, pelvic and spinal stabilization.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Foam rollers are a versatile tool commonly used in physical therapy and fitness training. They can help improve muscle balance by targeting specific muscle groups and releasing tension or tightness. Additionally, foam rollers can assist in pelvic and spinal stabilization by engaging the core muscles and promoting proper alignment. Therefore, the statement that foam rollers can be used for improving muscle balance, pelvic, and spinal stabilization is true.

    Using a prop such as a miniball or yoga brick  to enhance more abductor engagement does not increase pelvic floor activation.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Using a prop such as a miniball or yoga brick can help enhance abductor engagement during exercises. However, it does not have any direct impact on pelvic floor activation. The pelvic floor muscles are a separate group of muscles that need to be targeted specifically for activation. Therefore, the statement that using a prop to enhance abductor engagement does not increase pelvic floor activation is true.

  • 4. 

    Individuals with osteoporosis should avoid and or limit exercises with spinal flexion.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Individuals with osteoporosis should avoid and/or limit exercises with spinal flexion because these movements can put excessive strain on the spine and increase the risk of fractures. Osteoporosis is a condition characterized by weak and brittle bones, and spinal flexion exercises, such as sit-ups or crunches, can lead to compression fractures in the vertebrae. It is important for individuals with osteoporosis to engage in exercises that promote bone strength and minimize the risk of injury, such as weight-bearing exercises and resistance training, while avoiding movements that can potentially harm the spine.

  • 5. 

    Exercises that can be used to improve scapular and shoulder stabilization include protraction/retraction, arm circles and arm scissors.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    These exercises mentioned, such as protraction/retraction, arm circles, and arm scissors, are indeed effective for improving scapular and shoulder stabilization. Protraction/retraction exercises involve moving the shoulder blades forward and backward, which helps strengthen the muscles responsible for stabilizing the scapulae. Arm circles and arm scissors also engage the shoulder muscles and promote stability by challenging their range of motion and control. Therefore, the statement is true.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    Toe taps challenge pelvic and spinal stabilization.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Toe taps require the individual to maintain stability in their pelvis and spine while performing the movement. This is because the exercise involves lifting and lowering the legs while keeping the core engaged and the back straight. By challenging pelvic and spinal stabilization, toe taps help to strengthen the muscles responsible for maintaining proper posture and alignment. Therefore, the statement "Toe taps challenge pelvic and spinal stabilization" is true.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Hip isolations on a stability ball work on spinal stabilization.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Hip isolations on a stability ball involve performing controlled movements of the hips while balancing on the unstable surface of the ball. This exercise requires engaging the core muscles, including the muscles of the spine, to maintain stability and control. By working on spinal stabilization, hip isolations on a stability ball help to strengthen the muscles that support the spine and improve overall core strength and stability. Therefore, the statement "Hip isolations on a stability ball work on spinal stabilization" is true.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    All exercises that involve levers (either the arms or legs) being extended should always be performed with an imprinted pelvis (posterior tilt).

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement suggests that exercises involving extended levers should always be performed with a posterior tilt of the pelvis. However, this is not true. While a posterior tilt can be beneficial for certain exercises, it is not necessary or appropriate for all exercises involving extended levers. The correct answer is false because there are exercises where a neutral or anterior tilt of the pelvis may be more appropriate or beneficial.

  • 9. 

    Training proper engagement of the transverse abdominus is a key to overall core stabilization and pelvic stability.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Engaging the transverse abdominus is indeed crucial for overall core stabilization and pelvic stability. The transverse abdominus is a deep abdominal muscle that acts like a corset, providing support and stability to the spine and pelvis. When this muscle is properly engaged, it helps to improve posture, prevent back pain, and enhance overall functional movement. Therefore, the statement that training proper engagement of the transverse abdominus is key to core and pelvic stability is true.

  • 10. 

    Using miniballs to enhance the adductor engagement helps to strengthen the pelvic floor to aid in improving urinary incontinence.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Using miniballs to enhance the adductor engagement can indeed help strengthen the pelvic floor muscles. The adductor muscles, located on the inner thighs, play a crucial role in supporting the pelvic floor. By engaging these muscles with miniballs, individuals can effectively target and strengthen the pelvic floor, which can be beneficial for improving urinary incontinence. Therefore, the statement is true.
