Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    What type of serum cholesterol protects against the development and progression of blood vessel damage?

    • A.

      low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL)

    • B.

      Total cholesterol

    • C.

      Very low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (VLDL)

    • D.

      High-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL)

    Correct Answer
    D. High-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL)
    Explanation
    High-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL) is the correct answer because it is known as the "good" cholesterol. HDL helps to remove excess cholesterol from the bloodstream and transport it back to the liver for disposal. This process prevents the buildup of cholesterol in the blood vessels, reducing the risk of blood vessel damage and progression of cardiovascular diseases. LDL cholesterol, on the other hand, is known as the "bad" cholesterol because it can contribute to the development of plaque in the arteries, leading to blood vessel damage. Total cholesterol and very low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (VLDL) are not specifically associated with protecting against blood vessel damage.

    What principle of resistance training states that in order to enhance muscular performance, the body must exercise at a level beyond that to which it is normally stressed?

    • A.

      Principle of progression

    • B.

      Principle of specificity

    • C.

      Principle of regularity

    • D.

      Principle of overload

    Correct Answer
    D. Principle of overload
    Explanation
    The principle of overload states that in order to enhance muscular performance, the body must exercise at a level beyond that to which it is normally stressed. This means that in order to see improvements in strength and endurance, the muscles need to be challenged with progressively increasing levels of resistance or intensity. By continually pushing the body to work harder than it is accustomed to, it adapts and becomes stronger and more efficient. This principle is the foundation of resistance training and is essential for achieving fitness goals.

  • 24. 

    Which term best describes the type of muscular action in which the muscle length remains constant and no movement occurs?

    • A.

      Concentric

    • B.

      Isokinetic

    • C.

      Isometric

    • D.

      Isotonic

    Correct Answer
    C. Isometric
    Explanation
    Isometric is the term that best describes the type of muscular action in which the muscle length remains constant and no movement occurs. In isometric contractions, the muscle generates tension without changing length, resulting in static strength. This type of contraction is commonly used in exercises such as planks or wall sits, where the muscles are contracted without any visible movement. Isometric contractions are beneficial for building muscular strength and stability.

    A dumbbell lunge is an example of which of the following?

    • A.

      Isokinetic training

    • B.

      Dynamic constant external resistance training

    • C.

      Isometric training

    • D.

      Plyometric training

    Correct Answer
    B. Dynamic constant external resistance training
    Explanation
    A dumbbell lunge involves performing a lunge exercise while holding dumbbells, which adds resistance to the movement. This type of training is known as dynamic constant external resistance training because the resistance remains constant throughout the exercise, regardless of the joint angle or muscle length. Isokinetic training involves maintaining a constant speed of movement, which is not the case in a dumbbell lunge. Isometric training involves holding a static position, while plyometric training focuses on explosive movements. Therefore, the correct answer is dynamic constant external resistance training.

    What term describes the time between the eccentric and concentric phases of a plyometric exercise?

    • A.

      Recovery phase

    • B.

      Explosive phase

    • C.

      Stretch shortening phase

    • D.

      Amortization phase

    Correct Answer
    D. Amortization phase
    Explanation
    The term that describes the time between the eccentric and concentric phases of a plyometric exercise is the amortization phase. This phase is also known as the transition phase, and it refers to the brief moment when the muscle switches from the eccentric (lengthening) phase to the concentric (shortening) phase. During this phase, the muscle undergoes a rapid change in direction, storing and releasing energy to produce a powerful and explosive movement. It is important to minimize the duration of the amortization phase to optimize the efficiency and effectiveness of the plyometric exercise.

    What is the proper term for a weight that can be lifted 10 times but not 11 times with the proper form?

    • A.

      6RM

    • B.

      8RM

    • C.

      10RM

    • D.

      11RM

    Correct Answer
    C. 10RM
    Explanation
    The proper term for a weight that can be lifted 10 times but not 11 times with the proper form is 10RM. RM stands for "repetition maximum" and indicates the maximum number of repetitions that can be performed with good form before reaching muscle failure. In this case, the individual can lift the weight for 10 repetitions, but their muscles fatigue and cannot complete an 11th repetition.

    Rate this question:

  • 32. 

    What RM loads have the greatest effect on the development of muscular strength in adults?

    • A.

      3RM to 6RM

    • B.

      8RM to 10RM

    • C.

      12RM to 15RM

    • D.

      18RM to 20RM

    Correct Answer
    A. 3RM to 6RM
    Explanation
    The RM (repetition maximum) loads refer to the amount of weight lifted for a specific number of repetitions. In this question, the 3RM to 6RM range is the correct answer because it represents a higher intensity of weightlifting. When individuals lift heavier weights for fewer repetitions, it places a greater demand on their muscles, leading to increased muscular strength development. The other options (8RM to 10RM, 12RM to 15RM, and 18RM to 20RM) involve lifting lighter weights for more repetitions, which primarily focus on muscular endurance rather than strength.

    The training volume is calculated by multiplying the number of sets, reps, and weight lifted. In this case, the individual performed 3 sets of 8 reps with 100 lb on the bench press. So, the training volume would be 3 (sets) x 8 (reps) x 100 (lb) = 2400 lb.

    Which of the following muscle actions is most likely to result in muscle soreness?

    • A.

      Concentric

    • B.

      Eccentric

    • C.

      Isometric

    • D.

      Isokinetic

    Correct Answer
    B. Eccentric
    Explanation
    Eccentric muscle actions are most likely to result in muscle soreness. This is because eccentric contractions involve the lengthening of the muscle while it is under tension, such as when lowering a weight during a bicep curl. This places greater stress on the muscle fibers, leading to microscopic damage and inflammation, which can result in soreness and stiffness. Concentric contractions, on the other hand, involve the shortening of the muscle while under tension, and do not typically cause as much muscle soreness. Isometric contractions involve holding a muscle in a static position, and isokinetic contractions involve maintaining a constant speed throughout the movement.

    If the primary goal of a resistance training program is to enhance local muscular endurance, how long should an individual rest between sets and exercises?

    • A.

      30-60 seconds

    • B.

      60-120 seconds

    • C.

      120-180 seconds

    • D.

      More than 240 seconds

    Correct Answer
    A. 30-60 seconds
    Explanation
    For enhancing local muscular endurance, shorter rest periods are recommended. Resting for 30-60 seconds between sets and exercises allows the muscles to partially recover while still maintaining a level of fatigue. This helps to improve the endurance capacity of the muscles by challenging them to sustain repeated contractions over an extended period. Longer rest periods would allow for more complete recovery, which is not the primary goal in this case.

    A phase of resistance training that lasts about 5 months

    • A.

      Microcycle

    • B.

      Mesocycle

    • C.

      Macrocycle

    • D.

      Midcycle

    Correct Answer
    B. Mesocycle
    Explanation
    A mesocycle refers to a phase of resistance training that typically lasts about 4-6 weeks. It is a periodized approach to training where specific goals and adaptations are targeted. Within a mesocycle, different training variables such as intensity, volume, and exercise selection may be manipulated to promote specific adaptations. The mesocycle is part of a larger training plan called a macrocycle, which encompasses multiple mesocycles and can last several months to a year. Therefore, the given correct answer, mesocycle, aligns with the description provided.

    • A.

      Fitness professional

    • B.

      General manager

    • C.

      Exercise physiologist

    • D.

    Correct Answer
    D. Patient's medical provider
    Explanation
    The patient's medical provider should determine when a patient with heart disease can begin resistance training because they have the medical knowledge and expertise to assess the patient's condition and determine if it is safe for them to engage in such activities. They can take into account the patient's specific medical history, current medications, and overall health status to make an informed decision. This ensures that the patient's safety and well-being are prioritized during the exercise program.
