Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    The leg curl machine will primarily train the ________________ muscles.

    • A.

      Hamstring

    • B.

      Quadriceps

    • C.

      Rectus Abdominis

    • D.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    A. Hamstring
    Explanation
    The leg curl machine primarily trains the hamstring muscles. The hamstring muscles are located at the back of the thigh and are responsible for flexing the knee joint. By using the leg curl machine, the hamstring muscles are targeted and strengthened. This exercise is particularly beneficial for improving hamstring strength and stability, which is important for various activities such as running, jumping, and squatting.

    Lifting light weights for a lot of repetitions will target the aspect of fitness called ____________________.

    • A.

      Muscular endurance

    • B.

      Muscular strength

    • C.

      Flexibility

    • D.

      Body Composition

    Correct Answer
    A. Muscular endurance
    Explanation
    Lifting light weights for a lot of repetitions is a common training method to improve muscular endurance. Muscular endurance refers to the ability of the muscles to sustain repeated contractions over an extended period of time. By performing many repetitions with light weights, the muscles are trained to endure fatigue and continue contracting for longer durations. This type of training is particularly beneficial for activities that require prolonged muscle exertion, such as long-distance running or endurance sports.

    When performing a shoulder press, this exercise will target the shoulder muscle which is known as the ________.

    • A.

      Trapezius

    • B.

      Rectus femoris

    • C.

      Pectoralis major

    • D.

      Deltoids

    Correct Answer
    D. Deltoids
    Explanation
    When performing a shoulder press, the exercise primarily targets the deltoid muscle. The deltoids are the main muscles responsible for shoulder abduction and flexion, which are the primary movements involved in a shoulder press. The trapezius muscle is responsible for movements of the neck and upper back, the rectus femoris is a muscle in the thigh that is involved in knee extension, and the pectoralis major is a chest muscle that is primarily involved in movements of the shoulder joint. Therefore, the correct answer is deltoids.

    When stretching before or after a workout, a stretch should be held for at least ___________.

    • A.

      1 minute

    • B.

      5 seconds

    • C.

      15-30 seconds

    • D.

      5-10 seconds

    Correct Answer
    C. 15-30 seconds
    Explanation
    When stretching before or after a workout, a stretch should be held for at least 15-30 seconds. This duration allows the muscle fibers to lengthen and increase flexibility without causing strain or injury. Holding a stretch for less than 15 seconds may not provide enough time for the muscles to fully relax and elongate, while holding it for longer than 30 seconds may lead to overstretching and potential damage. Therefore, 15-30 seconds is considered an optimal range for effective stretching.

    Correct Answer
    D. Bicep curl
    Explanation
    The correct name of the exercise being performed in the picture is a bicep curl. This exercise specifically targets the bicep muscles located in the front of the upper arm. It involves flexing the elbow joint to lift a weight towards the shoulder while keeping the upper arm stationary. The exercise helps to strengthen and tone the biceps, improving arm strength and aesthetics.
