general term used to describe the complex biochemical reactions involved in muscle formation and development
loss of lean body mass, strength and function commonly associated with age
demands placed on a system must be increased systematically and progressively over time to cause physiological adaptation
metabolismall energy and material transformation that occur within living cells and necessary to sustain life
muscle tissues; ability of a muscle to shorten in response to a suitable stimuli
nerves connecting nervous system to muscle
optimal heart rate
measured in terms of maximal amount of oxygen in the body
obtained by counting your pulse either on the wrist over the radial artery or over the carotid artery in the neck
quantifies the amount of work performed during a training session
maximum amount of resistance an individual is able to lift in a single effort
muscle contraction with movement; full range of motion
type of fiber; greater anaerobic potential and fast speed of contraction
bodily movement produced by skeletal muscles
muscle tissues; ability of a muscle fiber to recoil and resume its resting length
included in the core of the body
tightening or narrowing of a muscle
muscle tissues; ability to receive and respond to stimuli via generation of an electrical pulse which causes contraction of the muscle cells
a type of physical activity that requires 'planned, structured and repetitive bodily movement to improve or maintain one or more components of fitness'
a condition involving enlargement of muscles

produces detrimental and undersirable side effects especially in women
amount of weight lifted by an individual
sum of all repetitions multiplied by the resistances during a training session
attained through an active lifestyle and moderate physical activity
can be used to roughly estimate strength when time is a factor
