The purpose of this study was to examine the effect of selective skin cooling over m. vastus lateralis (VL) on the activation patterns of quadriceps femoris muscle during knee extension exercise (KEE) using muscle function magnetic resonance imaging (mfMRI). The isometric force production of the right thigh was tested in 7 healthy young men at maximum(More)
The purpose of the study was to determine the effect of muscle damage with and without superficial cooling on force and neural activation of the triceps surae muscles. Seven men performed maximal plantarflexion contractions with and without superficial cooling over the medial gastrocnemius, before, immediate after, and 2 days after transcutaneous electrical(More)
The purpose of our study was to determine the effect of vascular occlusion on neuromuscular activation and/or the energy metabolic characteristics of the quadriceps femoris (QF) muscles during muscle contractions. Seven men participated in the study. An occlusion cuff was attached to the proximal end of the right thigh, so that blood flow in the anterior(More)
