Once the yield point is passed, some fraction of the deformation will be permanent and non-reversible. We call this aging. True elastic limit – Up to this amount of stress, stress is proportional to strain your human spring can handle without remodeling your tissues. This means below this level you don’t get enough stress to improve your tissue strength Failure Strength – this is when bones break, discs instantly herniate, meniscus tears, ankles sprain, muscles rip, tendons avulse or tear, ligaments tear
