1

1 RM (1 repetition maximum)

Is the maximum amount of force that can be generated in one maximal contraction. This is commonly used to measure strength.

2

Aerobic power

Is the maximum rate of energy production from the aerobic energy system (i.e. energy produced in the presence of oxygen).

3

Agility

Is a combination of flexibility and speed, which allows the performer to change direction with maximal speed and control.

4

Anaerobic capacity

Is the total amount of energy obtainable from the anaerobic energy systems (the combined capacity of the ATP-PC system and anaerobic glycolysis system).

5

Balance

Is the ability of the body to remain in a state of equilibrium while performing a desired task.

6

Body composition

Refers to the relative proportions of bone, muscle, and fat within the body.

7

Coordination

Is the ability to used different parts of the body together smoothly and efficiently.

8

Flexibility

Is the range of movement around a joint.

9

Muscular endurance

Is the ability of a muscle or group of muscles to sustain repeated contractions against a resistance for an extended period of time.

10

Muscular power

Is the ability of a muscle or group of muscles to exert a maximum amount of force in the shortest period of time.

11

Reaction time

Is the time between a stimulus and the first response.

12

Speed

Is the rate of motion (distance/ time).

13

Strength

Is the peak force that a muscle can develop.
