Anaerobic Activity

1.)     Exercise requires the body to dip into its stores of fuel, namely:

  • Oxygen and sweat
  • Glycogen and fat
  • Lean mass and water
  • Muscle and nervous system

2.)     Exercise deficiency can lead to accelerated development of diseases associated with sedentary lifestyle (cardiovascular disease, obesity, intestinal disorders, apathy, insomnia, increased bone loss, etc) :

  • True
  • False

3.)     Anaerobic metabolism refers to a series of chemical reactions in the body that:

  • Do not require oxygen
  • Do not require sunlight
  • Do not require water
  • Do not require glycogen

4.)      ATP (adenosine triphosphate) is:

  • Very limited in supply – about 30 seconds
  • The most immediate source of chemical energy for muscular activity
  • Useful in its rapid availability of energy
  • All of the above

5.)     After the allocated supply of ATP is exhausted, the body must find another fuel source for muscular activity to continue.  That fuel source is the:

  • Central Nervous System
  • Lactic Acid System
  • Digestive System
  • Fuel Exhaust System

6.)      Anaerobic Glycolysis means:

  • The breakdown of fat without oxygen
  • The breakdown of protein without oxygen
  • The breakdown of sugar without oxygen
  • The breakdown of lean mass without oxygen

7.)     When carbohydrate is only partially broken down, one of the end products is:

  • Lactic Acid
  • Amino Acid
  • Stomach Acid

8.)     High levels of Lactic Acid in the muscle and blood can result in:

  • A more powerful workout
  • Muscular fatigue and soreness
  • Better digestion
  • Immediate increase in energy and stamina

9.)      Basketball, Tennis, Football, Volleyball and Alpine  Skiing are Anaerobic:

  • True
  • False

10.)    The two primary anaerobic fuel systems are:

  • The Central Nervous System and Body-Fat System
  • The Amino Acid System and Muscle System
  • The ATP System and Lactic Acid System
  • None of the above
