Proximal is the closest to the point of attachment or the trunk of the body whereas distal is when the limb that is farther from the point of attachment or the trunk of the body. Supine is when you are laying horizontally face and torso is up while when you are Prone is when you still laying horizontally but your face is down.

What is the difference between eccentric and concentric contraction?
Eccentric and concentric always work in pairs. If we were to look at the bicep and we are going to a position of flexion. The bicep is concentric contraction, while to tricep is eccentric muscle contraction. Before we move on, I want you to go into a flexion motion and tell me if you can feel both forms of contraction.
