length tension relationship
length at which muscle can produce greatest force
force velocity curve
ability of muscles to produce force with increasing velocity
as velocity of a concentric muscle contraction increases its ability to produce force
force couple
synergistic action of muscles to produce movement around a joint

muscle synergies
groups of muscles that are recruited by the cns to produce movement. simplifies movement by allowing mm and joints to operate as a functional unit

shoulder press
deltoid, rotator cuff , trap
cumulativve neural input to cns from all mechanoreceptors that sense position and limb movements
