Watch: 5 FAQs to achieve top marks in your fitness exam
FAQ 1: Do I need to remember every muscle for my L2 Anatomy Fitness Exam?
Question from Sean [1min 05 secs]
You need to know 26 muscles to achieve top marks in your fitness exam (for level 2 anatomy). However you need to know 50 muscles at level 3.
Part of this knowledge includes knowing the location of the muscle. You may have questions like:
Understanding all of the muscles is Module 5 within the Level 2 Anatomy and Physiology Revision Mastery Bootcamp. Plus you can now make learning even easier by joining our L2 Premium Bootcamp Package – which includes flashcards for all 26 muscles.
FAQ 2: How would you correct A hyperkyphosis posture?
Question from Jenny [5 minutes 16 secs]
Posture compensations will come up in both the Level 2 Principles Exam and he Level 3 anatomy fitness exam, so if you want to achieve top marks in your fitness exam, then you need to know this.
Hyperkyphosis is a postural compensation whereby the thoracic portion of the spine is excessively flexed forwards, and scapula protracted. This could be caused by a skeletal deformation in which case it cannot be corrected by fitness alone. However, if it is a result of muscles that are used incorrectly, then this can be corrected with appropriate stretching and strengthening.
In this posture the Chest Muscles are tight, so you want to incorporate Chest stretches within the programme.
Also, the mid trapezius and Rhomboids are weaker, so you want to use row actions to engage the back muscles and encourage more scapula retraction.
FAQ 3: I’m confused, what’s the difference between Muscle Spindles and The Golgi Tendon Organ (GTO) ?
Question from Lisa [7 minutes 53]
The Muscle Spindles and The Golgi tendon Organ are both Proprioceptors. These are sensors within the Nervous system, and we discuss this in Module 6 of the Level 3 anatomy and physiology revision mastery Bootcamp.
They are both in the muscle but sense different things. The Golgi Tendon Organ senses Tension within the muscle. The Muscle Spindles sense the Length of the muscle.
FAQ 4: What is meant by a nutritional recommendation?
Question from Tony [10minutes 21seconds]
The Nutritional case study as part of your L3 PT or Exercise Referral Qualification will often ask for you to provide advice based on nutritional recommendations.
A nutritional recommendation is a guideline set out by the National Institute for Clinical Excellence (NICE). These stipulate a few recommendations to improve general health.
It is expected that you include a few of these in your recommendations to your client.
The recommendations include:
– Eat less than 6g of salt per day
– Eat 5+ Fruit and Veg per day
– Drink at least 2 litres of water per day
FAQ 5: Tell me more about the structure of the Exercise Referral Course, I’m a busy mum and I’m not sure how it will work for me?
Question from Danielle [12 minutes 08 seconds]
The Exercise Referral Qualification can be completed in your own time, so you can fit it around your busy life.
most learners will study for 2-4 hours a week and complete within 8-16 weeks. Here’s a bit more info…
