    Abdominal exercises will flatten your stomach.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Crunches and other ab exercises can help you strengthen your abs and improve your posture and abdominal muscle tone. But muscle is muscle and fat is fat. If you have excess abdominal fat, you won't be able to see your ab muscles, no matter how many crunches you do. To lose the fat — and show off those toned abs — you need to burn more calories than you consume.

     Ideally, you want to have as high as possible level in your blood of:

    • A.

      Low-density lipoproteins (LDL).

    • B.

      High-density lipoproteins (HDL).

    • C.

      Apolipoprotein B100.

    Correct Answer
    B. High-density lipoproteins (HDL).
    Explanation
    Low density lipoprotein (LDL) is the "bad" cholesterol that attaches to the walls of the blood vessels and contributes to the development of a thick, waxy plaque. High density lipoprotein is the "good" cholesterol that helps to prevent plaque build-up. You want to have your LDL level as low as possible and your HDL level as high as possible.

    Which foods below are good soluble fiber sources and can help maintain healthy cholesterol levels when part of a heart healthy diet?

    • A.

      Oat bran, oatmeal, apples, citrus fruit, soybeans.

    • B.

      Wheat bran, whole wheat, broccoli, green peppers.

    Correct Answer
    A. Oat bran, oatmeal, apples, citrus fruit, soybeans.
    Explanation
    Oat bran, oatmeal, apples, citrus fruit, and soybeans are good sources of soluble fiber. Soluble fiber helps to reduce cholesterol levels by binding to cholesterol in the digestive system and preventing its absorption into the bloodstream. Wheat bran, whole wheat, broccoli, and green peppers are not mentioned as sources of soluble fiber in the given options.

  • 12. 

    The best time of day to exercise is?

    • A.

      There is no best time.

    • B.

      Morning - you burn more fat on an empty stomach.

    • C.

      Evening - your energy is high.

    • D.

      Mid-day - working out before lunch will curb your appetite.

    Correct Answer
    A. There is no best time.
    Explanation
    The only 'best' time to exercise is the time you WILL exercise. There's no proof that prove that you burn more fat in the morning or that evening exercise is better because you're more awake. Fit exercise into your schedule and your own body clock and you'll be better able to stick with it.

    The best way to tell if you've had a good strength training workout is:

    • A.

      If I'm sore the next day.

    • B.

      If my muscles feel shaky after my workout.

    • C.

      If I've lifted enough weight to make my last repetition very difficult, but not impossible.

    • D.

      If my muscles look bigger after my workout.

    Correct Answer
    C. If I've lifted enough weight to make my last repetition very difficult, but not impossible.
    Explanation
    Muscle soreness is not an indication of success. It's normal to be sore after you begin lifting weights or when you significantly change your routine. If you're sore on a regular basis, you need to back off. To make sure you're challenging your muscles, use enough weight that you can ONLY complete the desired number of repetitions (usually between 8 and 16). If you can do more reps, you need to add more weight.
