    Isometric failure needs to bolded.

    Priority Principle = Performing an exercise or working a body-part first in a weekly routine or within a workout in order to be unfatigued and maximally recovered from the last training session. Generally, lagging body-parts or weak movements or exercises are prioritized as this allows you to work with a greater intensity than when you are fatigued or under-recovered. To prioritize a body-part within a weekly routine, you would schedule its day immediately after the longest rest period you have between training sessions.

    These confused the hell out of me.

    Abduction = movement away from the central axis of the body.

    Abductor = Muscle used to pull a body part away from the central axis of the body.

    Adduction = movement towards the central axis of the body.

    Adductor = Muscle used to pull a body part toward the central axis of the body.

    Antagonist = Muscle that relaxes or stretches during the performance of a movement

    The link from the HIT entry seems to be broken. Feel free to delete this post after it's fixed. I'd like to read up on HIT.

    :confused: I can't remember what thread that pointed to. perhaps you could do a search for HIT, I'm sure you will find a number of threads about it. I haven't tried it so I've never read much about it. oh, and I don't have any power to delete other's posts ;)
