OVEREXTERION. 
Doing a movement or task that is beyond the body’s physical capacity which results in an injury or insult to the musculoskeletal system. This system of bones, cartilage, ligaments, muscles and other connective tissue is responsible for normal body support and movement. 

We've all done it. Weekend warriors. Long hours on the job. Lifting a  heavy object. Even playing with the kids, trying to pretend we're younger and more flexible than we really are. A move gone wrong and the pain that follows reminds us we shouldn't have done that.
