Muscular Contraction and Movement
Terms in this set (17)
Force developed when a contracting muscle acts on an object.
Force exerted the muscle
Tension-producing process of the contractile elements within muscle.
The capability of a force to produce rotation of a limb around a joint.
A muscle fiber contraction in which the tension generated by the muscle fiber is constant through the range of motion.
A muscle contraction in which the force exerted varies as the muscle shortens to accommodate change in muscle length and/or joint angle throughout the range of motion while moving a constant external load.
A dynamic muscle contraction that produces tension during shortening.
A dynamic muscle contraction that produces tension (force) while lengthening
A muscle fiber contraction in which the velocity of the contraction is kept constant.
A muscle contraction in which the rate of limb displacement or joint rotation is held constant with the use of specialized equipment.
A muscle fiber contraction that does not result in a length change in muscle fiber
A muscle contraction that produces an increase in muscle tension but does not cause meaningful limb displacement or joint displacement and therefore does not result in movement of the skeleton.
Delayed-Onset Muscle Soreness (DOMS)
Is a condition characterized by muscle tenderness, pain on palpitation, and mechanical stiffness that appears approximately 8 hours after exercise, increases and peaks over the next 24-48 hours, and usually subsides within 96 hours.
The ability of a muscle or muscle group to exert maximal force against a resistance in a single repetition.
The ability of a muscle or muscle group to repeatedly exert force against a resistance.
The amount of work done per unit of time; the product of force and velocity; the ability to exert force quickly.
The measurement of the neural or electrical activity that brings about muscle contraction
