Three... an automatically variable form of resistance that varies instantly as movement occurs.
Four... balanced resistance that varies in accordance with the actual requirements of the muscles in different positions.

Six... negative work potential
Seven... positive work potential
Eight... pre-stretching; a factor that is required during the last one or two repetitions of a set of high-intensity movements.
