FITT Frequency, intensity, time, and type
Skill related fitness components Have a relationship with enhanced performance in sports and motor skills
Agility Relates to the ability to rapidly change the position of the entire body in space with speed and accuracy
Balance Maintenance of equilibrium while stationary or moving
Coordination Relates to the ability to use the senses such as sight and hearing together with body parts in performing motor tasks smoothly
Speed Ex ability to perform a task in a short amount of time

Body composition Relates to the relative amounts of muscle, fat, bone, and other body parts
Flexibility The range of motion available at a joint
Cardiovascular endurance The ability of the circulatory and respiratory systems to supply oxygen during sustained physical activity

Muscular endurance The muscles ability to continue to perform without fatigue
Progression Increasing the stress to your body during exercise
Overload Going above and beyond what your body can perform, going to failure
Specificity Strengthening specific muscles to improve performance in an activity
Target heart rate Rate at which your cardiovascular system receives the most benefits from exercise without working too hard
Metabolism The chemical process b which the body breaks down food to release energy
Cardiovascular intensity workouts Jump roping, speed walking, jogging, circuit training, aerobic activities, kick boxing, and use of step boxes
Resistance training, anaerobic Use of weights or bands to strengthen or tone the muscle without aerobic expenditure, intense and doesn't last very long
Isometrics Muscles contract but very little body movement takes place, example: stretch legs by leaning against a wall with your hands
Health and skill components of volleyball Agility, jumping, hand eye coordination
How many Americans play volleyball? 46 million
When was volleyball invented? 1895
Who was volleyball invented by? William G. Morgan
When was the first game of volley ball played? July 7, 1896
Is a line ball out or in? In
What happens in the ball touches the net and goes over? It remains in play
What is a foot fault? When a foot goes over the line during a serve?
How many hits per side? 3
How many points per game? 25, 27 with a tie
What does a match consist of? First team to win 2 out of 3, or 3 out of 5
What are some individual foul examples? A player touches or catches the ball and calls it out, commits a body foul, hits the ball twice in a row, back player spikes the ball and fails
Give examples of at the net fouls? Player touches net, ball is pushed or held against against the net, foot crosses net line
How do players normally line up? Cover as much territory as possible, looks like a W
Where are front row players when the ball is served from the other side? Farther back
Where are the front row players when the ball is served from your side? At the net
Bump An underhand hit made with both hands together
Set A high pass above your head made with the fingertips

What is weight training? A form of exercise in which muscles are repeatedly contracted against a weight to reach fatigue, reshapes the body and builds muscles
Give 5 benefits of weight training? Allows you to move easier, improves muscular endurance, raises metabolism, burns calories even while resting, helps maintain a healthy body weight
Overload High intensity, lifter keeps going to point of failure or fatigue, stimulates more muscle fibers to be used
Progression To systematically increase the stress a muscle receives during an exercise, done by increasing weight, increasing repetitions, increasing sets, decreasing rest intervals
Specificity Strengthening specific muscles to improve performance in an activity
Range of motion Moving through the muscle and joints full range
Aerobic exercise A continuous activity that relies on oxygen for energy, continues for 30 minutes, heart rate must be increased by 60-80%, burns fat, builds endurance
Anaerobic exercise Start and stop, burns glycogen for energy, instead of oxygen, example: weight lifting
Failure Being unable to complete a move due to fatigue
Repetition Each individual movement of an exercise or lift
Resistance E actual weight against which a muscle is working
Rest interval A pause between sets that allows the body to recover and prepare for the next series
Set A series of repetitions performed without a rest
Hypertrophy The increased size of a muscle as a result of high intensity weight training
Atrophy The decrease in muscle size and strength due to inactivity
Intensity The amount of force or energy you expend during a workout
Antagonistic muscle groups Muscles that work in opposition to each other, examples: bicep and tricep, hamstring and quadricep
Flexion A decrease in a joint angle
Extension An increase in a joint angle
Contraction Increase in muscular tension
Relaxation Decrease in muscular tension
Testosterone The hormone responsible for the increase in the size of muscle tissue
Anabolic steroids Synthetic productions of testosterone
Inhale Breathing that takes place during the recovery or negative part of the lift
Exhale Breathing that takes place during the exertion or positive part of the lift
Eccentric contraction Negative part or the recovery of the lift, muscles lengthen during resistance
Concentric contraction Positive part of the lift or the exertion, muscles shorten during resistance
Isometric exercises Lifts that go through no ROM with a constant resistance
Isotonic exercises Lifts that go through a ROM with the exact same weight or resistance
Isokinetic exercises Lifts that go through a ROM with a varied weight or resistance to maintain a high muscle tension
Muscular strength The maximum amount of force that can be exerted
Muscular endurance The maximum amount of force that can be exerted over a long period of time
Core lifts Lifts that involve the major muscle groups, generally working the belly of the muscle, squats, bench press, power cleans
Auxiliary lifts Lifts that involve the smaller muscles, generally working the ends of the muscles
Give examples of weight room rules Always have a spotter, vary lifts, put everything where you found it
Strength training Higher intensity, lower repetitions, most productive
Power training Slightly lower weight, more repetitions, builds strength, endurance, amd moderate muscle growth
