What is blood pressure?

  • How hard your heart beats
  • How clogged your arteries are
  • How much pressure your heart creates when pumping
  • How much force blood creates against artery walls
  • How much force your heart needs to circulate blood
How much force blood creates against artery walls


Blood pressure, the force of blood against artery walls, is measured in millimeters of mercury.


To achieve minimum health and fitness benefits, adults should aim for how many aerobic exercise sessions per week?


  • 1
  • 2
  • 3
  • 4
  • 5
  • 6
  • 7


Aim for a minimum of 3 days of cardio (aerobic exercise) per week with no more than 2 days off between sessions. Gradually work your way up to 5 or 6 days per week.


Which of the following best describes calisthenics?

  • Ballet exercises
  • Women's exercises
  • 80's exercises
  • Body weight exercises
  • Stretching exercises
  • Aerobic exercises


Calisthenics are exercises that use your own body weight in lieu of outside or added resistance. You can use the weight of your own body to develop muscle, but using body weight alone is less effective for developing larger muscles and greater strength. However, calisthenics adequately improve general muscular fitness and are sufficient to improve muscle tone and maintain one’s current level of muscular strength. Examples include: pushups, crunches, dips, pull ups, lunges, and squats, just to name a few.
