The trigger has to overcome three items.
1. Initial spring tension that the hammer/stricker & trigger are under.
2. Dragging of the trigger along the sear: This distance is called creep.
3. The overtravel: Which is the continued backward movement of the trigger once it has released the hammer/sear.

A gunsmith working on some or all of the above, Along with pull or release weight. Is commonly called a trigger job.
