BLOOD LIPIDS

Also known as cholesterol and triglycerides, blood lipids are carried i the bloodstream by protein molecules known as high-density lipoproteins (HDL) and low-density lipoproteins (LDL).

1

DIABETES MELLITUS

Chronic metabolic disorder caused by insulin deficiency, which impairs carbohydrate usage and enhances usage of fats and proteins.

2

DECONDITIONED

A state of lost physical fitness which may include muscle imbalances, decreased flexibility, and a lack of core and joint stability.

3

PROPRIOCEPTION

The cumulative sensory input to the central nervous system from all mechanorecptors that sense body position and limb movement.

4

PROPRIOCEPTIVELY ENRICHED ENVIRONMENT

An unstable (yet controllable) physical situation in which exercises are performed that causes the body to use its internal balance and stabilization mechanisms.

5

PHASES OF TRAINING

Small divisions of training progressions that fall within the ghree building blocks of training.

6

MUSCULAR ENDURANCE

A muscle's ability to contract for an extended period.

7

NEUROMUSCULAR EFFICIENCY

The ability of the neuromuscular system to enable all muscles to efficiently work together in all planes of motion.

8

PRIME MOVER

The muscle that acts as the initial and main source of motive power.

9

SUPERSET

Set of two exercises that are performed back-to-back, without any rest time between them.

10

RATE OF FORCE PRODUCTION

Ability of muscles to exert maximal force output in a minimal amount of time.
