Completely lengthened state is the _______.

Separating the joint surfaces to get increased mobility, usually during the "pull" sequences with the extremities.
Compression of the joints, usually during the "push" sequences with the extremities.
Muscles that are working to complete a pattern, muscles are actively shortening.

________ is necessary to develop coordination, strength, and endurance.
Stronger body parts strengthen weaker parts through ________.
Methods for promoting a neuromuscular response through stimulation of the proprioceptors on order to increase strength, flexibility, coordination, and endurance.
Proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation (PNF)
- Must be graded to allow full ROM when movement is wanted.
- Must be graded so as not to break the patient's hold when want isometric.
- Stimulates active movement and activation of weaker muscles through overflow.
