____________-any bodily movement that is done by skeletal muscles that results in energy being used
what principle states: subjecting the body to more physical activity than it is used to
principle of progression
which principle states: a gradual increase in a training programs intensity, frequency and or time?
the principle of progression is also know as the____________?
principle of specificity
which principle states: the concept that only the body systems worked during training will show adaptions
principle of reversibility
which principle states: the concept that training adaptations will revert towards initial levels when training is stopped
principle of individuality
which principle states: refers to the variable nature of physical activity dose-response or adaptation in different people
principle of recovery
which principle states: your body needs time to rest from the physiological and structural training stresses that you place on it
