In order to offer greater understanding, I am beginning a list of definitions.
These are not carved in stone and can be considered a work in progress if we find additional wording or change add clarity.
Please feel free to add your own relevant terms if you have some with or without definitions.
Here are the initial terms:
Rep Maximum = The perfromance of a rep or number of reps with any load that represents the maximum abilty of the trainee at that very moment
Personal Record Rep Maximum = Would be the best Rep Maximum Performance in one's training history, or within a "specified" training History (such as pre-surgery, pre-injury, post rehab, over 40/50, etc)
Personal Record = The best perfromance of an individual, of an physical action or event within a specified period or set of conditions
Performance = a measurable or perceptable level of output

INTENSITY = The momentary or collective magnitude of effort, as can be expressed by power for dynamic actions or tension force for static actions.
POWER = The amount of work performed within a time frame
WORK = The act of moving, acting on or against, a load through a distance
FATIGUE = The accumulation of chemical metabolic and neuro-related metabolites and by products, as well as damaged and or retired muscle tissues, that can occur, accumulate and impact muscle action.
MUSCLE STRENGTH= The ability to express force via muscle action
MUSCLE FORCE = The ability create tension in a muscle via muscle actions
CONCENTRIC ACTION = Muscle action through a shortening via sliding filament muscle action
ECCENTRIC ACTION = Muscle action of lengthening via a forced lengthening or volitional relaxation or yielding
STATIC STATE = Muscle action which involves tensioning with no shortening or lengthening, sometimes called isometric.
FORCE/VELOCITY RELATIONSHIP = The recognition that relatively Heavy Loads will move slower than relatively Lighter Loads.
LOAD/VELOCITY RELATIONSHIP = The recognition that relatively Heavy Loads will move slower than relatively Lighter Loads.
FORCE/LENGTH RELATIONSHIP = The recognition that a muscle will produce a varying force depending on the available number of cross-bridges as it contracts or tensions from full stretch to fully shortened.
DOMS = Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness, may also be termed Exercise Induced Muscle Soreness.
SUPER COMPENSATION = The theory that a muscle will "overadapt" or overcompensate to a stimulus.
DIRECT COMPENSATION = The theory that a muscle will adapt in DIRECT response to a sufficient stimulus. SAID
CORRESPONDING COMPENSATION = same as DIRECT COMPENSATION
ADAPATIVE RECONSTRUCTION = same as DIRECT COMPENSATION
FATIGUES = Any and all residual and accumulative effects to the muscle, and body that cause a performance degradation via said accumulation.
