Performing the same motions over and over again. The severity of risk depends on the frequency of repetition, speed of the movement or action, the number of muscle groups involved and the required force.
An individual completed exercise movement. Repetitions are usually done in multiples.
A term used most often in resistance exercises or weight lifting. A single movement, as in doing one squat (going down and then going back up would be one rep). A certain number of reps will equal a set
The number of times you lift and lower a weight in one set of an exercise. For example, if you lift and lower a weight 10 times before set-ting the weight down, you have completed 10 "reps" in one set.
A single complete movement of an exercise.
a series of the same movement performed over and over
a single completed back and forth motion of a resistance exercise, such as one flexion and extension of the arm at the elbow while holding a dumbbell in your hand
a single completed movement of an exercise from starting position, through the entire movement, then back to the starting position
a single complete movement as when a muscle contracts/flexes and then relaxes/extends
a single contraction of the muscle through its complete range of motion
a single unit of running
The number of times a specific exercise is performed within a set. (e.g. 10 push-ups without rest).
A single movement, as in doing one squat. This is going down and then going back up. For toning, strength and endurance do more reps at a lower weight.
each hard effort in an interval workout. Also, one complete movement in a weight-training exercise; rep for short.
Each individual count of an exercise that is performed. Series of repetitions called “sets” are performed on each exercise in your training program.
Repetition is the number of a similar exertions performed during a task. A warehouse worker may lift three boxes per minute from the floor to a countertop; an assembly worker may make 20 units per hour. Repetitive motion has been associated with injury and worker discomfort. Generally, the greater the number of repetitions, the greater the degree of risk. However, there is no specific repetition limit or threshold value (cycles/unit of time, movements/unit of time) associated with injury.
The number of times a weight is lifted and lowered during a set. If you performed 10 push-ups, then you did 10 repetitions.
One complete movement of an exercise.
The number of times you lift and lower a weight. The more repetitions the more muscle to build.
One repetition of an exercise. Each individual movement of an exercise.
A repetition is a movement comprised of two phases: (1) movement against a resistive force – the concentric phase (often the raising of a weight) and (2) movement that is overcome by a resistive force – the eccentric phase (often the lowering of a weight).
The duplication of movements or movement phrases within choreography.
the number of similar exertions performed during a task. Repetition is only one risk factor and must be evaluated in terms of other factors such as force, posture, cold and vibration.
The number of times an exercise is performed.
