A sustained mucle contraction.
The inability of muscle tissue to continue to generate or sustain tension.
The amount of oxygen needed for metabolism to replace muscle ATP and phosphocreatine reserves.
A muscle molecule which stores "backup" energy in high-energy phosphate bonds, created from creatine and ATP when muscles are at rest.
The stiffness of joints and muscular rigidity after death caused by tight binding of actin and myosin in the absence of ATP.
The curve showing the relation between a muscle's length and the isometric tension which it generates when fully activated, showing that too much or too little overlap of thick and thin filaments in festing muscle results in decreased tension.
Length Tension Curve
A contraction which creates force and moves a load
A type of muscle contraction in which the muscles shorten while generating force. This occurs when the force generated by the muscle exceeds the load opposing its contraction.
A contraction in which the muscle elongates while under tension due to an opposing force greater than the muscle generates.
A contraction which creates force without movement.
