An extra pound of muscle can increase resting metabolism rate by... 35 calories per day
Strength starts to decline between... 25-40 yrs old
Atrophy is... Decrease in Muscle Fiber
Strength is dependent on Muscle mass, Muscle Fiber, activation, this all reduces around 25-40 yrs and instability of joints, lack of balance, and difficulty with daily tasks.
What's the definition of Strength, Endurance, and Power? Strength: the muscle’s ability to exert a singular maximal effort against an objectEndurance: measure of sustained muscle activityPower: combination of strength and endurance

Difference between Isometrics and Isotonic Exercises? Isometrics require no equipment. Isotonic (good ROM)can be done with or without equipment. Isokentics is good for rehabilitation
Isometric Contraction? No change in the length of muscle or joint angle
Isotonic Contraction? Length of muscle and joint angle changesConstant resistanceVariable resistanceWithin an isotonic contraction there are two phases
Concentric Isotonic Contraction? Shortening of the muscle creates force
Eccentric Isotonic Contraction? Lengthening of muscle creates force, need to use both ! for maximum strength and muscle growth.
Isokentic Contraction Contracts through the range of motion with constant velocity,Force exerted by the machine equals force exerted by the exerciserCybex machines
Breathing and Timing? Timingconcentric phase 1-2 secondseccentric phase 3-4 secondsBreathing exhale when lifting (concentric)inhale when lowering (eccentric)
