Minor cross-over effects of unilateral muscle fatigue have been reported after isometric exercises. The present study re-examined this possibility after an exhaustive stretch-shortening cycle (SSC)-type exercise. Twenty-five subjects performed on a sledge apparatus a unilateral exhaustive rebound exercise involving mostly the triceps surae muscle group.(More)
This study investigated the acute and 2 days delayed influences of exhaustive stretch-shortening cycle exercise (SSC) on barefoot walking and running gait patterns. The SSC exercise was performed on a sledge apparatus, on which the subjects (N = 10) repeated until exhaustion intermittent series of 25 bilateral submaximal rebounds. Maximal drop-jumps and(More)
This study examined the perceived movement velocity induced by tendon vibrations during the delayed recovery phase of a stretch-shortening cycle (SSC)-type exercise characterized by 2 to 4 days of neuromuscular and proprioceptive impairments. Seven subjects performed until exhaustion series of unilateral rebounds involving mostly the triceps surae muscle(More)
Stretch-shortening cycle (SSC)-type fatigue is associated with acute and delayed functional defects, and appears to be a useful model to reveal the flexibility of both central and reflex adjustments to the contractile failure. SSC fatigue was induced in an experimental (EXP) group (n=6) on a sledge ergometer with an exhaustive rebound exercise with(More)
The present study utilized high-impact supra-maximal landings to examine the influence of the pre-impact force level on the post-impact electromyographic (EMG) activity and, in particular, on the short latency EMG reflex (SLR) component. Unilateral-leg landings were performed in a sitting position on a sledge apparatus after release from high, but(More)
This study examines the static position sense from the ankle joint following a unilateral exhaustive stretch-shortening cycle (SSC)-type exercise involving mostly the triceps surae muscle group. Fatigue effects were quantified within the exercised and non-exercised leg through a maximal isometric voluntary plantarflexion test (MVC) performed immediately(More)
