10 Questions

According to the OVERLOAD principle, what is the main requirement for adaptive changes to occur during resistive exercise?

Increased volume of sets, sessions per week, and adding exercises

What does the Specificity principle in resistive exercise emphasize?

Specific adaptations to imposed demands

Which type of resistive exercise intensity determination is NOT appropriate for pathological tissue in a rehab setting?

1 RM (one repetition maximum)

What is the main goal of resistive exercise training with 8-12 repetitions estimated to be approximately 80% of 1 RM?

Strength, Muscle hypertrophy

What does resistive exercise dosage aim to consider when applying exercise science principles?

Protecting tissue while inducing physiological adaptive muscle changes

Which type of resistive exercise involves muscle tension equal to external resistance with no change in joint angle?

Isometric exercise

In which resistive exercise type does the speed of contraction determine the muscle force production?

Dynamic Constant External Resistance (DCER)

What type of contraction involves rapid lengthening?

Eccentric contraction

When should submax isometric contractions be incorporated into rehabilitation?

In the initial stages if pain-free and in submax

What determines the muscle force generation capabilities?

Speed of contraction

This quiz covers the principles of resistive exercise and classic strength assessment techniques, including isotonic machines, free weights, isokinetic testing, and isometric exercises. It also discusses dynamic constant external resistance (DCER) and concentric muscle contractions.
