Consider the following statements for accuracy.
(a)Inactivity affects health for anyone at any age. The only difference is it tends to catch up worse at older ages.
Therefore(a)is not an accurate statement.
(b)Total fitness includes physical fitness, emotional fitness, psychological fitness, and other areas.
Therefore(b)is an accurate statement.
(c)Men and women share many parts of physiology but the genders also differ greatly in several key places. Men tend to be physically stronger and larger than women, which is no different than other mammals in the world.
Therefore(c)is not accurate.
(d)Total fitness has many parts of which only one is physical health.
Therefore(d)is not accurate.
Muscles have to be worked in particular ways to increase strength.
(a)The reversibility principle talks about how people lost the effects they have built up if they stop exercising. It is not the way to improve strength.
Therefore(a)is not the way to increase strength.
(b)The overload principle is how you gain strength. It is the incremental increase to the stress put on the body when working out.
Therefore(b)is the way to gain strength.
(c)The FITT principle is a four part set of rules to benefit from various fitness programs. It includes frequency, intensity, type, and time.
Therefore(c)is not specific for strength exercise.
(d)Compound interest is a banking term but works for health. It simply states that your rewards from exercising will compound. This has nothing specific to do with strength training.
Therefore(d)is not specific for strength exercise.
Consider the statements in terms of healthy weight.
(a)The level of hunger your feel has nothing to do with whether you have a healthy weight or not.
Therefore(a)is not a correlation for a healthy weight.
(b)Body mass index or BMI is the ratio of height and weight. A healthy BMI correlates to a healthy weight.
Therefore(b)is a correct correlation to a healthy weight.
(c)Waist measurements of 25-28 inches do not correlate to healthy weight. An adult male with these measurements could be underweight for example.
Therefore(c)is not a correlation for a healthy weight.
(d)Hip to waist ratio is not indicative of healthy weight. There are many different body types and each has their own ratio that can exist at a healthy weight.
Therefore(d)is not a correlation for a healthy weight.
