- where to measure skinfolds
- what system uses oxygen
- sacromere
- diff btwn skeletal/cardiac muscle
- what muscles are antagonists when walking uphill

NOT HEART RATE REST
by: Anonymous

that would be heart rate reserve, not at rest... thats because well trained athletes have a lower resting HR and can handle higher intensities... if it goes by their resting HR, it will short them

FISSE

I think it was supposed to be FITTE. Which is Frequency, Intensity, Time, Type, and Enjoyment.
