A

abduction, abductor
Abduction is movement away from the central axis of the body, an abductor is a muscle whose
contraction results in this movement
compare adduction

Abs, abdominals
The muscles in the front of the stomach, giving the
"six pack" look in people with sufficiently low
bodyfat. Their function is to draw the base of the ribcage and the hips towards each other, as occurs
when performing
crunches . Note that conventional sit-ups are performed largely by the iliopsoas muscles

acetaminophen
a common
over the counter analgesic (pain reliever) that is not a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug, sold under the brand name Tylenol®, and many others.

It may be used when a pain killer is desired which will not inhibit clotting or produce gastric upset,
though it will not provide any anti-inflammatory effects, nor may it be substituted for aspirin in the
ECA stack.
achilles tendon
the
tendon connecting the lower end of the calf muscle to the back of the heel

adduction, adductor
Abduction is movement away from the central axis of the body, an abductor is a muscle whose
contraction results in this movement.
compare abduction

adductors, thigh
several muscles located in the upper part of the inner thigh whose function is to pull the legs towards
the midline.
adenosine triphospate, ATP
the molecular "currency" that provides energy within cells for everything from protein synthesis to
muscle contraction
adipose tissue
fat (bodyfat)
adrenoceptor
receptor that responds to hormones (such as epinephrine (adrenaline)) produced by the adrenal gland

aerobic
requiring oxygen when describing exercise, it refers to extended sustained levels of exertion during which metabolic processes that provide energy are dominated by the complete oxidation of nutrients
compare anaerobic

agonist
a chemical agent that stimulates, activates, accelerates, or enhances a process in the body
compare antagonist

amino acids
basic building blocks of
protein

branched chain amino acids

essential amino acids

anabolic, anabolism
tending to build or repair tissue, muscle tissue in particular
compare catabolic

"The Anabolic Diet"



analgesic
tending to reduce or eliminate pain
androgenic
producing or accentuating male sexual characteristics (body hair, deepened voice, male pattern baldness). One of the characteristics of steroids, whether synthesized in the lab or naturally in the body is their anabolic-androgenic ratio: if some amount of steroid X produces the same anabolic effects as a given amount of testosterone, how do the androgenic effects compare to those produced by that quantity of testosterone.

anaerobic
compare aerobic

antagonist
[1] a chemical agent that inhibits, prevents, slows, or stops a process in the body
compare agonist

[2] a muscle that relaxes or stretches during the performance of a movement
compare prime mover

stabilizer
synergist

anticatabolic
preventing or lessening
catabolism

aromatase
an
enzyme responsible for (among other things) converting testosterone into estrogens

aspartame
Artificial, noncaloric sweetener, generic name for
Nutrasweet

aspirin
originally a brand name, aspirin is now a generic term for acetylsalicylic acid (C
9 H 8 O 4 ), a common over the counter non-steroidal anti-inflammatory

Side effects include inhibition of blood clotting (so that it may increase internal bleeding and/or the
extent of bruising if used when an injury is fresh).
acetaminophen (Tylenol®) may be used when a
pain killer without these effects is desired, though it will not provide any anti-inflammatory effects,
nor may it be substituted for aspirin in the
ECA stack.

ATP
see
adenosine triphospate

avulse, avulsion
tearing away a body part or structure such as tearing a tendon or ligament off of a bone.

2.Biochemistry. A drug or other chemical that can combine with a receptor on a cell to produce a physiologic reaction typical of a naturally occurring substance.
