Acute responses to flexibility training Flashcards

soft tissues
Terms Definitions
Soft tissues possess
Certain mechanical and dynamic properties that allow for performance of necessary functions as well as protection from forces they may encounter
Whenever a tissue is subjected to a force,
A change in the shape of the tissue may occur .these are called deformations
The extent of deformations depends on variables such as
The type of tissue,the amount of force applied,and the temperature of the tissue
When a tensile ,or horizontal,force is applied to a tissue,
It's length is increased .this lengthening is called tensile deformation
In general terms,"stretching" refers to the process of elongation and "stretch" refers to
The elongation itself
