AE, Anaerobic endurance - ability to generate super high levels of power and or pace, ususally cannot be maintained for long periods of time.
Glycogen - storage form of carbohydrate.
LT, Lactate Threshhold - also called anaerobic threshhold, level of exercise intensity above which lactate begins to rapidly accumulate in the blood as metabolism shifts from dependence on the combustion of fat and O in the production of energy to dependence on glycogen, etc..
ME, Muscular Endurance - where force meets endurance, assists in maintaining high and steady paces for longer periods of time.
Power - apply maximum force quickly but still economically.
VO- volume of oxygen that your body uses during aerobic exercise
