5-7 times weekly
If an individual is "too busy" to exercise, which of the following FITT guidelines is the barrier to fitness?
Which of the following is not one of the Principles of Training?

Cardiovascular fitness is NOT also known as:?
Maximum heart rate
Cardiovascular fitness refers to the body's ability to:
Take in, transport and utilise oxygen
Take in, transport and utilise carbon dioxide
Utilise slow twitch muscle fibres
Utilise fast twitch muscle fibres
Cardiovascular exercise is classified as being:
random, continuous and using small muscle groups under low to moderate tension over an extended period of time
rhythmic, continuous and using large muscle groups under high tension over a short period of time
strenuous, continuous and using large muscle groups under high tension
rhythmic, continuous and using large muscle groups under low to moderate tension over an extended period of time
Maximum heart rate is estimated by:
180 + your age
220 - your age
220 * your age
220 + your age
The aerobic weight management zone is:
50% - 60%
60% - 70%
70% - 80%
80% - 90%
"Hard" on the 6-20 Borg Scale is measured as:
During exercise, which of the following short term changes does not occur?
Blood vessels dilate
Concentration of CO2 in the blood increases
Levels of lactic acid in the blood rise
Stroke volume decreases
Cardiovascular training benefits include all but one of the following?
The lungs become more efficient
There is a decrease in the number of red blood cells
The stroke volume of the heart increases
Increase in capillarisation in and around muscle tissue, as well as heart and lungs
Overall blood pressure may be increased
Within the muscles there is an increase in both number and size of mitochondria
Improvement in bone density
Improves the fat profile of the blood by causing more fat to be carried as HDL rather than LDL
Which of the following is untrue about younger people in regards to CV training?
Younger people are under more stress than adults during aerobic activity to supply muscles with the amount of oxygen they are burning
Children tend to heat up and cool down slower than adults
Children don't carry as much water and can dehydrate during activities more easily
Younger people are not equipped to tolerate anaerobic exercise or an aerobic curve
In regards to CV training for special populations, which of the following is not true?
In pregnancy, low to moderate intensity is recommended in order to preserve blood flow to the foetus.
Older adults have a lower tolerance to lactic acid, need longer to recover and can overheat rapidly
Older adults should be encouraged to perform continuous high impact CV activities to strengthen bones and joints
Individuals with disabilities may have a low fitness level due to inactivity caused by their disability
