Heart Quizzes & Trivia

There is a level of activity that the heart can handle and if it passed that, it is a sign of danger. Have you been too attentive in class and think that you can handle any quiz that is coming to you on the gauging exercise intensity and how to keep it healthy? Let us test out our knowledge by seeing just how high you might score in the quiz below.
