Eccentric Contraction followed by a Rapid Concentric Contraction
Increasing the strenuousness of exercise to a consistently higher level through maximum or near-maximum stimulation is an application of what principle? A. Overtraining B. Conditioning C. Overload D. DAPRE
The predominance of one type of muscle fiber over another in the human body results primarily from: A. Conditioning program B. Gender C. Age D. Inherited genetic factors
The ability of the body to undergo prolonged whole body activity or to resist stresses during prolonged activity is: A. Strength training B. Power C. Cardiorespiratory endurance D. Circuit training
The greatest rate in which oxygen can be taken in and utilized during exercise is referred to as: A. Residual volume B. Tidal volume C. Cardiovascular endurance D. VO2 max
If the intensity of an activity is such that sufficient oxygen can be supplied to meet the demands of working tissues, the activity is: A. Aerobic B. Anaerobic C. Isotonic D. Isometric
ATP is produced in the muscle from blood glucose, which is derived from the breakdown of dietary carbohydrates.
Isometric contractions increase the strength throughout the full range of motion of any given joint.
With proper cardiovascular training, any individual has the ability to increase his/her VO2 max to 70to80 ml/kg/min.
Overtraining can have a negative effect on muscular strength, but can be avoided through proper training techniques and getting appropriate rest.
Bonus The position of the insertion point of a muscle can determine how much force the muscle is able to generate.
BONUS The Golgi tendon organs respond to increased tension after: A. At least 6 seconds B. 60 to 70 seconds C. 10 to 20 seconds D. 20 to 30 seconds
A soccer player running ten 120 yd sprints in under 20 seconds each with a 1 minute walking recovery period between each sprint is an example of: A. Continuous Training B. Fartlek Training C. Interval Training D. Conditioning
When a sprinter runs the 60-yard dash he/she is primarily using which type of muscle fiber? A. Muscle Spindles B. Golgi Tendon Organs C. Fast Twitch D. Slow Twitch
Which strength training method changes the length of the muscle while the contraction is performed at a constant velocity? A. Isometric B. Isotonic C. Isokinetic D. Isodynamic
All of the following exercises are appropriate for improving strength in a young adolescent athlete EXCEPT: A. Calisthenics B. Body Weight Squats C. Push-Ups D. Power Cleans
For an isomteric exercise, one should hold the contraction for: A. 10 seconds B. 1 minute C. 10 minutes D. 1 hour
Eccentric contractions create a greater force than concentric contractions.
Excessive weight training impairs ones ability to develop flexibility
Females tend to experience initial rapid gains in strength which will tend to plateau after 3-4 weeks.
Training of a particular muscle group should occur 3-4 times per week and not on successive days.
During a microcycle training should be intense early in the week, progress to moderate, and finally light toward the end or the day before competition.
