Which of the following is an example of a muscle endurance test a) Push up test b) VO2 max test c) 3-min step test d) BYU jogging test 3 a) push up test
Which of the following measures must be included with hydrostatic weighing in order to get a more accurate result? a) residual volume b) vital capacity c) body mass index d) non-chlorinated water 4 a) residual volume
What is heart rate maximum reserve? 5 The result of subtracting the resting heart rate from the maximal heart rate; represents the working heart rate range between rest and maximal heart rate within which all activity occurs.
What is an informed consent? 6 Voluntary acknowledgement of the purpose, procedures, and specific risks of an activity which one intends to engage.
What is GXT? 7 Graded exercise (stress) test; A test that measures exact maximum aerobic capacity.
What is the Karvonen Formula? 8 The mathematical formula that uses maximum heart rate minus resting heart rate to determine target range. Training HR = (max. HR- resting HR) x (desired intensity [50-85%]) + RHR
What is the minimum evaluation you should complete with a client? 9 Health/risk screening and exercise history and readiness assessment.
How long should you wati before administering follow-up exercise tests on your client. 10 The frequency of follow-up testing will depend on the quality and quantity of the exercise training. The first follow up tests will be usually administered 4-12 weeks prior the onset of the exercise training.

This is the max. pressure created by the heart during a complete cardiac cycle. The lower number, diastolic, represents the pressure that remains in t
How is cardiorespiratory fitness testing assessed? 12 It can be assessed directly by measurement of oxygen uptake during a maximal graded exercise test or indirectly by estimating maximal oxygen uptake (VO2 max) from th heart rate response to a sub maximal work-load.
How would you convert absolute oxygen uptake to relate oxygen uptake? ex. weight = 251 lbs. absolute O2 = 3.811/min 13 1. Body weight (convert lbs to kg) 251 lbs/2.2 lbs/kg = 114kg 2. O2 uptake 1/min to ml/min 3.811 O2/min x 1000ml/1 = 3810 ml O2/min 3. Absolute to Relative 3810ml O2/min divided by 114 kg= 33.4 ml O2/kg/min

What measurment is the "gold standard" of body composition assessment? 16 Hydrostatic weighing
What is BMI? 17 Body Mass Index = weight divided by height. 1. Body weight (convert lbs - kg.) 209lbs/2.2lbs/kg = 95kg 2. Height: (convert inches to meters) 70in. x 2.54cm/in = 178 3. BMI = 95/(1.78)2 = 30
What is an anthropometric assessment? 18 Circumference and skinfold measures to estimate body fat and its distribution.
