DELAYED-ONSET MUSCLE SORENESS
Pain discomfort often felt 24 to 72 hours after intense exercise or unaccustomed physical activity.

Principle that states the body will adapt to the specific demands that are placed on it.
Refers to the weight and movements placed on the body.
Refers to the speed of contraction and exercise selection.
Refers to the energy demand placed on the body.
The ability to produce and maintain force production for prolonged periods of time.
Enlargement of skeletal muscle fibers in response to overcoming force from high volumes of tension.
The ability of the neuromuscular system to produce internal tension to overcome an external load.
Ability of the neuromuscular system to produce the greatest force in the shortest time.
Alternating body parts trained from set to set, starting from the upper extremity and moving to the lower extremity.
