  • level of sustainable power rate of each muscle group used in its best force and speed in its best range of motion.

This performance limit is closely related to "lactate threshold"

  • variations in sustainable power rate for each muscle group used at different forces or speeds, and in different sub-ranges of its possible motion.
  • few-repetitions strength capability of a joint or ligament of muscle to handle peak-force demand

This perfomance limit is seen when using high resistance on weight machines or free weights, or with high-intensity plyometric exercises.  At higher resistance levels, fatique occurs in the motion much sooner than lactate accumulation. 

  • long-term repetitive-stress resistance of different joints, ligaments, muscles
  • total central cardio-vascular capacity (heart, lungs, big central blood vessels)

This performance limit is closely related to "V02max".
