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.

Based on the protocol for determining the maximal load (13), we performed a modified protocol, which consisted of: i) general warm-up on a cycle ergometer, ii) a 10 repetitions warm-up on the dynamic LP resistance exercise, at an extremely low load (20 kg), which was also used to verify the execution technique, and iii) applying a load approximating 1RM.

Previous studies have demonstrated controversial findings regarding how these parameters (i.e., cardiac output [CO], SV, and SVR) change after resistance exercise. Some studies found that CO decreased [6, 7, 9, 10], probably due to reductions in SV [7, 9,10], while one study showed unchanged CO [8].
