Underwater Weighing - Also know as hydrostatic weighting, it is a method of determining body composition based on the assertion that the density of fat mass and fat-free mass are constant, lean tissue such as bone and muscle are more dense than water, and fat tissue is less dense than water. Therefore, a person with more body fat will weigh less underwater and be more buoyant. Someone with more muscle will weigh more underwater.

Unilateral Exercise - Exercises done on one side only, such as single leg squats or one arm dumbbell curls.

Universal Machine - One of several types of machines where weights are on a track or rails and are lifted by levers or pulleys.
