the maximal rate of energy production by the combined phosphagen and lactic acid energy systems for moderate-duration activities

4

local muscular endurance

the ability of certain muscles or muscle groups to perform repeated contractions against a submaximal resistance

5

aerobic power or capacity

the maximum rate at which an athlete can produce energy through oxidation of energy resources (carbs, fats, proteins)
