The Scientific Exercise Quiz determines the health of your current exercise routine along with the calories you burn in relation to your unique genetic body composition per cardio and resistance exercise using the latest science-based MET numbers.
Are you looking to be more healthy or on a weight loss journey but are unsure how your unique genetic body composition is affected by cardio and/or resistance training? If cardio exercise, which kind is best for your unique genetic body composition to burn the most calories — bicycling, hiking, jogging, rowing machine, running, sports, stationary bike, step machine, treadmill, walking, and/or workout classes (varies)? If resistance exercise, which kind is best for your unique genetic body composition to burn the most calories — calisthenics, isometrics, pilates, weightlifting/weight-training, and/or yoga?
Perhaps you just are curious to scientifically know how healthy your exercise routine is and how many calories you are burning. Taking the Official Scientific Body Type Quiz to understand your unique default genetic body composition and shape as well as your specific Standard BMR (basal metabolic rate)/minimum daily calories will help make your Scientific Exercise Quiz results as accurate and useful as possible.
The more intense your exercise, the more it affects metabolism (metabolic rate), as well as muscular hypertrophy, muscular endurance, muscular strength, muscular power, weight gain and loss, and overall health, no less.
Duration and the range of movement of your body and how many total body muscles (arms, legs, torso, neck, head) you use in your workout affect intensity, no less.
Minimal Cardio is less than 40 steps per minute
Very Light Cardio is 40 to 69 steps per minute
Light Cardio is 70 to 99 steps per minute
Moderate Cardio is 100 to 129 steps per minute
Intense Cardio is 130 or more steps per minute
How diligent and quick you are in terms of doing one exercise and then moving to another without taking a break in between or talking to other people or the like, as well as the type and order of your exercises, all affect intensity. The following scale is a rough indicator:
*Minimal is 1-2 pounds, 1-8 reps or more per set
*Very Light is 3-5 pounds, 4-12 reps or more per set
*Light is 5-10 pounds, 4-12 reps or more per set
*Moderate is 10 to 20 pounds or more, 8-12 reps or more per set and sometimes maxing out weight (which is fewer reps)
*Intense is no less than 20 to 40 pounds or more, 12 or more reps per set and/or regularly maxing out weight (which is fewer reps)
Bulking = generally higher weight and fewer reps
Cutting/Toning = generally lower weight and more reps
Calisthenics, Yoga, Pilates, Isometrics
Intensity = whether exercise(s)/pose(s) is standing, sitting, prone, or supine relative to duration, length of hold, number of reps, added weight, incline or decline, posture, breath control, and the connection of postures through breath and movement.
