inversion eversion pronation supination opposition flexion extension abduction adduction rotation
10 muscle movements

Saggital
divides the body into the right and left portions (flexion and extension)

Frontal
divides the body into back and front (abduction and adduction)

Transverse
divides the body into upper and lower portions (rotation)

Psychological core
attitudes, values, beliefs (bottom of pyramid)

Typical responses
calm, aggressive, sociable (middle of pyramid)

Role related behaviors
student, friend, daughter (top of pyramid)

type 1
Red and slow

type 2
white and fast

sliding filament theory
explains muscle contraction. Slide past each other to generate tension

Isometric
muscles are at the same length, while holding something up, but not moving (plank

Isotonic
Muscles are changing/moving but the tension remains the same (push-ups, bench press)

Concentric
Muscles are shortened

Eccentric
Muscles are lengthened

agonist
the muscle shortens in length

antagonist
the muscle stretches in length

Kinesiology
improve performance. To describe, evaluate, and prescribe corrections.
