Term Definition
serratus

Serratus Anterior is a muscle that keeps the shoulder blade from protruding, winging. It should be active when you do a bench press by preventing the shoulder blade to press down in the seat, winging out. It's very important for keeping the shoulder fixated and stable.

stamina

Endurance (also called sufferance) is the ability for a person to exert himself for a long period of time. In humans, it is usually used in aerobic or anaerobic exercise. The definition of 'long' varies according to the type of exertion - minutes for high intensity anaerobic exercise, hours or days for low intensity. Training for endurance can have a negative impact on the ability to exert strength unless an individual also undertakes resistance training to counteract this effect
