Flashcards in Ch. 16 Plyometric Training Deck (11):
1

stretch-shortening cycle

the countermovement involved in plyometric exercise

2

power

the force-speed relationship

3

series elastic component (SEC)

it acts as a spring and is lengthened; as it lengthens, elastic energy is stored

4

potentiation

change in the force-velocity characteristics of the muscle's contractile components caused by stretch

5

stretch reflex

the body's involuntary response to an external stimulus that streches the muscles

6

Muscle spindle

proprioceptive organs that are sensitive to the rate and magnitude of a stretch

7

eccentric phase

thephase in which a muscle is relaxing

8

amortization phase

the time between the eccentric and concentric phases

9

concentric phase

the body's response to the eccentric and amortization phases

10

complex training

a combination of high-intensity resistance training followed by plyometrics

11

balance

the maintenance of a position without moving for a given period of time
