Disinhibition: reducing the inhibition of muscle  action by reflex protective mechanisms. Size Principle: motor neurons with low threshold,  slow twitch velocity, and small diameter are  recruited first, with progressively larger and higher  threshold neuron recruitment as more force is  required. Synchronization: simultaneously recruiting motor  units.

Nervous system elicits greater muscular force by:  1. Innervating more motor units 2. Increasing rate of firing motor units Resistance training enables voluntary recruitment of  highest threshold neurons so can maximally activate  muscle. Resistance training activate motor units in coordinated  fashion for more efficient recruitment pattern. Improved synchronization of motor units.
