Bodily movement produced by skeletal muscles is called
physical activity
The 2008 Federal Guidelines for Physical Activity state that adults between 18 and 64 years of age should
-do 2 hours and 30 minutes a week of moderate intensity aerobic physical activity
-do 1 hour and 15 minutes (75 minutes) a week of vigorous intensity aerobic physical activity
-do an equivalent combination of moderate and vigorous intensity aerobic physical activity
-do muscle-strengthening activities that involve all major muscle groups on two or more days

The ability of a muscle to exert submaximal force repeatedly over time is known as
muscular endurance
Indicate which of the following exercises is not used to assess muscular endurance in men

Which activities contribute to the development of cardiorespiratory endurance?
-400-yard dash
The recommended duration for each cardiorespiratory training session is
15-30 minutes
During the eccentric muscle contraction
the muscle lengthens as it contracts
The training concept that states that the demands placed on a system must be increased systematically and progressively over time to cause physiological adaption is referred to as
the overload principle

performed between 8 and 12 reps maximum

Elastic elongation
When you perform stretching exercises, the degree of stretch should be
to the point of mild discomfort
Low back pain is associated with

-improper body mechanics
A goal is effective when it is
Using a combination of aerobic activities to develop overall fitness is known as
health-related fitness
The best aerobic activity choice for individuals with leg or back injuries is
walking in chest-deep water
The approximate jogging mileage to reach the excellent cardiorespiratory fitness classification is
15 miles
To help elevate the exercise heart rate during low-impact aerobics, a person should
accentuate arm movements and sustain movement throughout the program

almost always requires professional help
The following are goals of the 2010 Dietary Guidelines for Americans
-Increasing daily intake of fruits and vegetables, whole grains, and nonfat or low fat milk and milk products
-Increasing vegetable and fruit intake
-Increasing the amount and variety of seafood consumed by choosing seafood in place of some meat and poultry
-Reducing the intake of calories from solid fats and added sugars
Obesity is defined as
a body mass index equal to or above 30
The yearly estimated number of deaths attributed to excessive body weight and physical inactivity in the United States is
Obesity increases the risk for
-congestive heart failure
-type 2 diabetes
Tolerable weight is a body weight that is
not ideal but one that you can live with
When the body uses protein instead of a combination of fats and carbohydrates as a source of energy, a large amount of weight loss is in
the form of water
One pound of fat represents
3,500 calories
The mechanism that seems to regulate how much a person weighs is known as
set point
The key to successful weight management is
a lifetime physical activity program
The daily amount of physical activity recommended for weight loss maintenance is
60-90 minutes
A daily energy expenditure of 300 calories through physical activity is
the equivalent of approximately 31 pounds of fat per year
