In brief: Muscle fatigue

The energy to contact muscle is a function of the muscle mass, nutrients, training, oxygenation, blood flow, and systemic disease/health.
Basically if you exhaust the blood flow, nutrients, oxygenation and such, muscle overloads, the effeciency suffers, cramping or loss of sustained contraction results, and performer declines
