twisting the foot inward at the ankle
muscle
a fibrous, thread like tissue grouped into primary bundles by connective tissue capable of contracting and relaxing to affect body movement
overload
maximal contraction of a muscle tissue necessary to lift or hold a given resistance or weight.

rotation
movement around an axis
supination
rotation of forearm and hand to palm up
eccentric contraction
dynamic muscle contraction where the resistance is greater than the force applied and musscle lengthens as it contracts
concentric contraction
muscle applies enough force, shortens as contracts
static exercise
invocles muscle contraction without change in lt or angle of joint
dynamic/isotonic
involves muscle contraction with change in lt
