the body standing erect with arms down and palms forward
the angle between the overall muscle and its fibers
the angle through which an object rotates
an object's rotational speed
a muscle that can slow down or stop a movement
the mechanical analysis of biological systems
when a muscle shortens because its contractile force is greater than the resistive force
when a muscle lengthens because its contractile force is less than the resistive force
the resisting force encountered by an object moving through a fluid or by a fluid moving past or around an object
the resistive force encountered while attempting to move two surfaces in contact relative to each other
a vertical plane dividing the standing body into anterior and posterior halves
the pivot point of a lever
the force required to accelerate an object (mass x acceleration)
when muscle length does not change because the contractile force is equal to the resistive force
an object that, when subjected to a force whose line of action does not pass through its pivot point, exerts force on any object impeding its tendency to rotate
an arched back
the ratio of movement arm through which an applied force acts to that through which a resistive force acts
the perpendicular distance from the line of action of a force on a lever to its fulcrum
force generated by biomechanical activity which tends to drawthe opposite ends of a muscle towards each other
a muscle whose fibers have featherlike arrangement
the time rate of doing work (work / time OR force x velocity)
force which acts contrary to muscle force (gravity, inertia, friction)
rotational work per unit of time or torque times angular velocity
the product of torque and angular displacement
a vertical plane dividing the standing body into left and right halves
the concept that training is most effective when resistance exercises bear key similarities to the sports activity in which the improvement is sought

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a crossword?

Crossword puzzles have been published in newspapers and other publications since 1873. They consist of a grid of squares where the player aims to write words both horizontally and vertically.

Next to the crossword will be a series of questions or clues, which relate to the various rows or lines of boxes in the crossword. The player reads the question or clue, and tries to find a word that answers the question in the same amount of letters as there are boxes in the related crossword row or line.

Some of the words will share letters, so will need to match up with each other. The words can vary in length and complexity, as can the clues.

Who is a crossword suitable for?

The fantastic thing about crosswords is, they are completely flexible for whatever age or reading level you need. You can use many words to create a complex crossword for adults, or just a couple of words for younger children.

Crosswords can use any word you like, big or small, so there are literally countless combinations that you can create for templates. It is easy to customise the template to the age or learning level of your students.

Are crosswords good for students?

Crosswords are a great exercise for students' problem solving and cognitive abilities. Not only do they need to solve a clue and think of the correct answer, but they also have to consider all of the other words in the crossword to make sure the words fit together.

If this is your first time using a crossword with your students, you could create a crossword FAQ template for them to give them the basic instructions.
