To implement the right of the holder of an option to buy (in the case of a call) or sell (in the case of a put) the underlying security.

In option contracts, to buy (in the case of a call) or sell (in the case of a put) the underlying asset. The option holder has no obligation to exercise the option, and only does so if he/she believes it benefits him/her. Depending upon the nature of the option, this may be done at any point during the life of the contract, or it may only be done on the contract's expiry date. The strike price of the sale is agreed-upon in the option contract, that is, before the option is exercised.

To require the delivery (for example, a call option) or to force the purchase (for example, a put option) of the option's underlying asset. Many options expire without being exercised because the strike price stated in the option is unfavorable to the holder.

When you act on a buying or selling opportunity that you have been granted under the terms of a contract, you are said to exercise a right.

Contracts may include the right to exchange stock options for stock, buy stock at a specific price, or buy or sell the security or product underlying an option at a specific exercise price.

For example, if you buy a call option giving you the right to buy stock at $50 a share, and the market price jumps to $60 a share, you'd likely exercise your option to buy at the lower price.

Mean values (SD) of neuromuscular parameters before (Pre S1) and after (Post S6) an isokinetic exercise with four different recovery modalities.
Isokinetic exercises consisting of several sets of maximal concentric and/or eccentric contractions have been used to study neuromuscular fatigue (Babault et al., 2006; Lin namo et al., 2000; Michaut et al., 2003).
Thus the objectives of this study were: 1) propose a muscle injury inducing model using maximal eccentric isokinetic exercise with low angular speed; 2) assess the time course of recovery of the quadriceps femoris muscle injured by eccentric exercise with low angular speed, with special attention to functional recovery.
The study was designed to assess the time course of functional recovery of the injured quadriceps femoris muscle in a group of healthy, sedentary subjects submitted to a protocol of muscle injury induction by maximal eccentric isokinetic exercise with low angular speed.
Differently from the majority of studies using eccentric isokinetic exercise to induce muscle injury (Chen, 2003; Linnamo et al., 2000), the eccentric exercise of the present study used low angular speed.
When performing 60[degrees]/s isokinetic exercises in this study, no differences were associated with motor unit potential and the CNTF genotype.
