This exam will test student knowledge of the concepts learned in the strength and conditioning class.


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Name the three lower body joints extended during the hang clean.

    Explanation
    During the hang clean exercise, the three lower body joints that are extended are the ankles, knees, and hips. This means that these joints are straightening or opening up, increasing the angle between the bones involved. This extension is crucial for generating power and explosiveness in the movement, allowing for a smooth transition from the hang position to the catch position. By extending these joints, the body is able to transfer force from the lower body to the upper body, enabling an effective and efficient execution of the exercise.

    What are the three principles of our strength and conditioning program?

    Explanation
    The three principles of our strength and conditioning program are ground-based exercises, multi-joint exercises, and three-dimensional exercises. Ground-based exercises involve movements that are performed on the ground or with the feet in contact with a stable surface. Multi-joint exercises involve movements that engage multiple joints and muscle groups, allowing for greater strength and power development. Three-dimensional exercises involve movements in multiple planes of motion, helping to improve functional strength and movement efficiency.

    A shoulder width stance is used when hang cleaning.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    A shoulder width stance is not used when hang cleaning. The correct stance for hang cleaning is a hip-width stance. This allows for proper balance and stability during the movement. Using a shoulder width stance may lead to a less efficient and effective lift, as it can throw off the alignment and positioning of the body.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    A jump shrug is one part of the squat progression.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    A jump shrug is not a part of the squat progression. The squat progression typically consists of exercises that focus on strengthening the lower body, such as the goblet squat, front squat, and back squat. A jump shrug, on the other hand, is a power exercise that primarily targets the muscles of the upper body, particularly the traps and shoulders. Therefore, the statement that a jump shrug is part of the squat progression is false.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    To gain the full benefits of the squat, an athlete should be squatting to parallel.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Squatting to parallel is important for athletes to gain the full benefits of the squat exercise. When an athlete squats to parallel, it means that their thighs are parallel to the ground at the lowest point of the squat. This ensures that the muscles in the legs, particularly the quadriceps, glutes, and hamstrings, are fully engaged and activated. Squatting to parallel also helps to improve strength, power, and mobility in the lower body. It is considered the proper form for squats and helps to prevent injuries and imbalances. Therefore, the statement "To gain the full benefits of the squat, an athlete should be squatting to parallel" is true.

    Which of these three is considered a "push" exercise

    • A.

      Lat pull-down

    • B.

      One-arm row

    • C.

      Military press

    Correct Answer
    A. Lat pull-down
    Explanation
    A "push" exercise refers to a movement where you are pushing weight away from your body. In this case, the Lat pull-down is not considered a "push" exercise because it involves pulling the weight towards your body. The One-arm row and Military press, on the other hand, both involve pushing the weight away from your body, making them "push" exercises. Therefore, the correct answer is Lat pull-down.

    Which of these three is considered a "pull exercise"

    • A.

      One-arm row

    • B.

      Military press

    • C.

      Bench press

    Correct Answer
    A. One-arm row
    Explanation
    The one-arm row is considered a "pull exercise" because it primarily targets the muscles involved in pulling movements, such as the back muscles, biceps, and rear shoulder muscles. This exercise involves pulling a weight towards the body using one arm while keeping the back straight and engaging the core muscles. It helps to improve upper body strength, posture, and stability. On the other hand, the military press and bench press are considered "push exercises" as they primarily target the muscles involved in pushing movements, such as the shoulders, chest, and triceps.

    How much weight is one lifting when there is two plates on each side of the bar?

    • A.

      135 pounds

    • B.

      225 pounds

    • C.

      185 pounds

    Correct Answer
    B. 225 pounds
    Explanation
    When there are two plates on each side of the bar, it means that there are a total of four plates. If each plate weighs the same amount, then the weight of each plate would be half of the total weight. Therefore, if the total weight is 225 pounds, it means that each plate weighs 112.5 pounds.

    A spotter should be assisting the person who is bench pressing, squatting, and incline bench pressing.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    A spotter should be assisting the person who is bench pressing, squatting, and incline bench pressing because these exercises involve heavy weights and can be potentially dangerous if performed incorrectly or if the person is unable to complete the lift. A spotter can provide support, ensure proper form, and help the person safely complete the exercise by assisting with the weight if needed. This helps to prevent injuries and allows the person to push themselves to their limits while still maintaining safety.
