Chapter 7 Post-Study Quiz
Question 1
Repeating a stretching exercise does not affect the
sensitivity of the muscle stretch receptors.
True
Correct!
False
Question 2
The best way to challenge the core is by exercising while
standing on an unstable surface.
True
Correct!
False
Standing on a Bosu ball for example is a whole body
stability exercise. In addition, lifting heavy weights with
closed chain compound movements is an excellent
challenge to your core.
Question 3
1 / 1 pts
During the warm-up for sports like soccer, squash,
hockey, etc, it is best to perform some static stretches.
True
Correct!
False
The purpose of a warm-up is to prepare for the event
ahead not to improve flexibility. In addition static
stretching immediately before a dynamic activity is
detrimental to performance.
Question 4
1 / 1 pts
A stretch should be held in position for a minimum of 50
seconds.
True
Correct!
False
Most recommendations are between 20-40 seconds
Question 5
1 / 1 pts
It is beneficial to increase muscle temperature before
stretching.
Correct!
True
False
Increased muscle temperature increases the
compliance of the muscle and surrounding soft tissues.
Question 6
To improve flexibility (actually lengthen the muscle), the
ASCM guideline state that stretching exercises should
be repeated.
once
2 to 3 times
Correct!
3-4 times
4-5 time
at least 6 times
Question 7
1 / 1 pts
Stretch receptors are:
Devices used to measure flexibility.
Correct!
Sense organs in muscles that respond to stretching.
Found inside the brain.
Muscle fibres with elastic properties.
Question 8
1 / 1 pts
Contracting a muscle prior to stretching it is best
described as an example of:
Active stretching.
Passive stretching.
Ballistic stretching.
Correct!
Proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation.
Question 9
0 / 1 pts
Weight training may limit flexibility if:
The weight is very heavy.
Correct Answer
The weight is lifted through a limited range of motion.
You Answered
Only one set of each exercise is performed.
The number of repetitions is high.
Question 10
1 / 1 pts
Is wearing a lifting belt a good idea (choose the best
response)?
yes, all the time when in the weight room.
no, never.
yes, but only during exercises that stress the back
Correct!
yes, but only during near-maximal and maximal
exercises that stress the back (e.g. during lighter sets do
not wear a belt)
yes but only during chronic exposure to back stress
such as individuals who lift all day long at work.

Chapter 7 Pre-Study Quiz
Question 1
1 / 1 pts
Flexibility is not a reversible fitness component.
True
Correct!
False
Question 2
1 / 1 pts
Stretching may increase the degree of muscle soreness
after exercise.
True
Correct!
False
Generally speaking but excessive stretching can cause
injury.
Question 3
1 / 1 pts
Increased flexibility has been shown to improve
performance in some sports by allowing a person to
exert force through a greater range of motion.
Correct!
True
False
Question 4
1 / 1 pts
The flexibility of a joint is affected by its structure, the
nature of the surrounding tissue, and muscle elasticity
and length.
Correct!
True
False
Question 5
1 / 1 pts
Stretches that involve bouncy movements are most
effective for increasing an individual's range of motion.
True
Correct!
False
Bouncing into a stretch can be OK if done not too
vigorously after a general warm-up. It is often termed
dynamic stretching this case and can be very useful
prior to dynamic activities.
Question 6
1 / 1 pts
Static flexibility depends on all of the following EXCEPT:
Tightness of the muscles.
Tightness of the ligaments.
Structure of a joint.
Correct!
Muscular strength.
Question 7
1 / 1 pts
Which of the following is NOT normally a potential
benefit of flexibility?
Relief of aches and pains.
Maintenance of good posture.
Increased relaxation.
Correct!
Improved energy production.
Question 8
1 / 1 pts
The stretching technique most commonly
recommended by experts for general fitness is:
Correct!
Static stretching.
Ballistic stretching.
Proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation.
Passive stretching.
Question 9
0 / 1 pts
All of the following are functions of the spine EXCEPT:
Correct Answer
Structural support for the lower body.
You Answered
Attachment site for muscles, tendons, and ligaments.
Protection of the spinal cord.
Transmission of body weight to the lower body.
Question 10
1 / 1 pts
The most common site of back pain is the _____ area.
Cervical.
Correct!
Lumbar.
Thoracic.
Coccyx.

Chapter 8 Pre-Study Quiz
Question 1
1 / 1 pts
Training for maximum aerobic running power simply
involves running for long distances.
True
Correct!
False
Check back to Unit 5 Figure 5-12.
Question 2
0 / 1 pts
To train for volleyball, you should just play volleyball.
You Answered
True
Correct Answer
False
Relying just on games is not the most effective training
as you do not have control of the exact overload, if
indeed the game provides an overload.
Question 3
1 / 1 pts
To train for a sport one must understand the specific
demands of that sport.
Correct!
True
False
Question 4
0 / 1 pts
Speed is hereditary; you are either born with it or you
are not.
You Answered
True
Correct Answer
False
Certainly there are genetic limitations to the speed any
of us could achieve, but to reach those limitations you
must train do nothing and you will not be fast.
Question 5
1 / 1 pts
It is possible to obtain both muscular strength and
muscular endurance gains from a program, but not to
maximize potential in both components.
Correct!
True
False
The specificity principle is relevant here but thee is a
correlation between endurance and strength. If you do
high-reps low-weights you will get a little stronger, if
you do low-reps heavy-weights you will probably
improve your endurance in those muscles a little.
Question 6
1 / 1 pts
What is reversibility?
Correct!
The loss of the beneficial effects of earlier exercise.
The loss of muscular coordination.
Relaxation after periods of strenuous exercise.
The use of a combination of isometric and isotonic
exercises.
Question 7
1 / 1 pts
Muscular power can be thought of as:
The force a muscle can produce.
Correct!
The ability to apply force at speed.
The maximum speed a muscle can contract.
Sustaining a contraction for an long time.
Question 8
1 / 1 pts
The athlete’s physiological response to a training
program is affected by:
Motivation.
Heredity.
Current fitness state.
Correct!
All of the above.
