Description Muscular Endurance
Duchenne muscular-: -Dystrophy or DMD is a genetic disorder. DMD is caused by an absence of dystrophin, a protein that helps keep muscle cells intact. DMD is characterized by progressive muscle weakness and degeneration. Symptom onset is usually between ages 3 and 5. The disease primarily affects boys, but in rare cases it can affect girls. ...Read more
Mostly, first two: Isometric exercises are one where one uses muscle strength against an immovable or difficult to move resistance...Like standing in a doorway and with the arms at your side pushing against the inside of the door with the back of hands as hard as possible and maintain the push.

What is the difference in the exercise prescription for building muscular endurance vs muscle strength ?
Str vs Endur: Strength is looking for maximum output over a short period of time. An example of this would be powerlifting. Endurance would be training for long periods of time usually at a reduced rate. This would be a distance runner. Usually it is best to cross train, or train for both as in doing so you can develop both types of muscle fibers, fast twitch (strength) and slow twitch (endurance). ...Read more
Different cells hit: Neurologic muscle weakness is due to any disorder of the nerves activating muscles that causes weakness. Metabolic muscle weaknees is due to a disorder, usually of the muscle cells themselves, that leads to incomplete/inappropriate use of "fuel" conversion into energy by the muscle cells. ...Read more

Muscle weakness: Dmd is a condition when muscles start to die prematurely. It starts in early childhood, leads to weakness of voluntary muscles such as those of hips, pelvic area, thighs and shoulders. Calves are often enlarged. Eventually it involves all muscles including that of heart and that control breathing. Life span is shortened to less than 30 years. It is a genetic condition primarily in boys. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Depends: Disuse atrophy simply suggests that a muscle weakens because of lack of use. A muscle wasting disease can be related to a number of underlying factors, e.g. A neurologic disorder such as muscular dystrophy or lou gehrig's disease. Neurology consultation should be able to help rule out the more worrisome conditions. ...Read more
Muscle disease: Muscular dystrophy is a worsening disorder that causes muscle weakness. The worst kind is duchenne's dystrophy, that affects only boys, leads to severe weakness, and wheelchair needs, breathing difficulties in the teens. Milder forms can present later or not cause as much disability. These are genetic (runs in families) disorders. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
It is different: It is different from one person to the other and what type of muscular dystrophy the person has. Some patients have a mild form of the disease and some of the muscular dystrophies can be associated with heart involvement and breathing difficulties, so it could be serious. ...Read more
Muscle disease: Congenital myopathy means a disease of muscle present since birth, usually inherited. The congenital myopathies are due to several genetic defects, mostly associated with muscle energy use. Usually, people have muscle weakness or damage that is mild and presents in teen or older years. Muscular dystrophy is a congenital myopathy but much more severe and not usually under this name. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Muscle fatigue: DOMS delayed onset muscle soreness is a result of the muscle fibers being stretched out more than they are used to.

X-Linked Reces. MD: Duchenne dystrophy is inherited as an x-linked recessive trait, carried in women. It affects about 1in 3500 male births with no geographic/ethnic variation. About 1/3 of the cases are caused by new mutations, the others are familial. Diagnosis is usually evident from clinical features. The abnormality is in the cytoskeletal protein dystrophin. It is unclear why the lack of dystrophin ->findings. ...Read more
Muscular Dystrophy: Duchenne muscular dystrophy (dmd) is a genetic disorder characterized by progressive muscle degeneration and weakness. It is one of nine types of muscular dystrophy. Dmd is caused by an absence of dystrophin, a protein that helps keep muscle cells intact. Symptom onset is in early childhood, usually between ages 3 and 5. Myalgia is a term to indicate muscle pain. ...Read more
Muscle disorder: Muscular dystrophy includes a number of disorders which are associated primarily with abnormalities of the architecture of the cells, often causing changes in size and function (weakness). These disorders are typically inherited, and recognized early in life, although there are of course exceptions to this. Prognosis is based on the type of MD and expression of the specific geneotype. ...Read more
