  1. The cumulative sensory input ti the central nervous system from all mechanorecptors that sense body position and limb movement
    Proprioception
  2. An unstable (yet controllable) physical situation in which exercises are performed that causes the body to use its internal balance and stabilization mechanisms
    Proprioceptively enriched environment
  3. How quickly a muscle can generate force
    Rate of force production
  4. The muscle that acts as the main source of motive movement
    Prime mover
  5. Sets of 2 exercises that are performed back-to-back without any rest time between them
    Superset
  6. The ability of the body's nerves to effectively send mesages to the body's muscles
    Neuromuscular efficiency
  7. Primary connective tissue that connects bones together and provides stability, input to the nervous system, guidance, and the limitation of improper joint movement
    Ligament
  8. Connective tissues that attach muscle to bone and provide an anchor for muscles to produce force
    Tendons
  9. The superior chamber of the heart that recieves blood from the veins and forces it into the ventricles
    Atrium
  10. The inferior chamber of the heart that recieves blood from its corresponding atrium and, in turn forces blood into the arteries

  11. High-intensity, short-duration activity (heavy weight training, sprinting)
    Anaerobic Training
  12. Lower intensity, longer duration activity (walking)
    Aerobic
  13. Moving in the same direction as the resistance 
    Decelerates or reduces force
    Lengthening of the muscle 
    Eccentric
  14. No visible movement with or against resistnace
    Dynamically stabilizes force
    Isometric
  15. Moving in opposite direction of force
    Accelerates or produces force 
    Shortening of the muscle
    Concentric
