    Your teachers is wrong then because Narcotics are used to mask pain from injury and in the revision guide it clearly states " Human Growth Hormone (HGH) can help increase muscle mass and therefore strength" Then it says who might use peptide hormones (HGH) - and it says weightlifting so it definitely wasn't Narcotics
    I agree, if you looked at the wording of the question it gave it away. It stated that the weight lifter needed performance enhancers to lift more/heavier weights. Narcotics would not allow you to lift heavier weights they only allow you to increase your pain threshold whereas HGH allows you to increase muscle mass and strength.

    I put that it was not specific to the sport as cross country does not involve stepping on and off a bench, a more specific test would be the cooper 12 minute run.

    And also for the benefit i put that cross country is related to the health component of fitness cardiovascular fitness and so too is the Harvard step test.

    For the Olympic weightlifter wanting to carry more weight was the peptide hormones or narcotic analgesics? (Multiple choice question)
    Peptide hormones, Human Growth Hormone is a type of peptide hormone that increases muscle mass and strength.

    Hi I put:-
    Advantage;- improves cardiovascular fitness
    Disadvantage;- doesn't involve training on different surfaces (mud/grass/concrete) that are involved in cross country
    Not sure if its right though, I found this Question quite hard.

    hey guys, i did shortcourse. i'm just wondering what everyone got for this question. "making new friends is a ______ benefit of exercise" now i feel like the answer was social, but i have put mental. the reason being is last time i did a pastpaper multiplechoice question and said "what are 3 benefits of exercise that cover all 3 categories" the answer was: mixing with friends, making new friends, physical challenge. clearly here, making new friends was the mental one, which is why i put mental benefit in this exam, but i have a feeling it was a social benefit. pe gcse can be so confusing. i studied a lot for this exam and i hope i don't achieve a low grade, it's just making me sad. i hope the examiner accepts my answer, i feel like my reason to justify this answer is fair enough.

    yeah true, but in that question it was clear making new friends was the mental one as it doesnt go with the physical benefit of physical activity

    Yeah true but in that question it was clear that making new friends was the mental one as it didnt make sense for it to be a physical one so physical challenge was the physical benefit

    Im not too sure but I got 46/50 and I need 65/80 according to last years grade boundaries but because the paper was really hard the grade boundaries may be lower.
