A reversible condition in which a muscle is no longer able to generate or sustain the expected power output
The amount of extra oxygen required by muscle tissue to oxidize lactic acid and replenish depleted ATP and creatine phosphate following vigorous exercise
A molecule whose high energy phosphate bonds are created from creatine and ATP when muscles are at rest
After death, muscles are unable to bind more ATP because metabolism stops and ATP supplies are exhausted; muscles freeze due to immovable cross bridges and tight binding of myosin and actin for a day or so until enzymes in decaying fiber begin to break down muscle protein
The strength of an isometric contraction to the length of the muscle at which the contraction occurs
Length tension curve
Any contraction that creates force and moves a load
A muscle contraction in which the muscles shorten while generating force
The muscle elongates while under tension due to an opposing force greater than the muscle generates
Contractions that create force without moving a load
