Body Composition

The picture is explaining how a person with more fat than muscle can weight the same as a person with more muscle than fat.

Reaction Time

It was the last round the last ball to send flying. Her opponent then served the ball, it was a fast one, but she reacted accordingly. The round continued like this while the ball seemed to get faster and more evasive. The ball flew to the floor, and in an attempt to save it she flew the floor and hit it high giving her time to get up. Her opponent swung one last time, but she was ready, determined to end this game now.
