Effects of moderate-intensity endurance and high-intensity intermittent training on anaerobic capacity and VO2max.
TLDR
It is shown that moderate-intensity aerobic training that improves the maximal aerobic power does not change anaerobic capacity and that adequate high-intensity intermittent training may improve both an aerobic and aerobic energy supplying systems significantly, probably through imposing intensive stimuli on both systems. Expand
Muscle volume is a major determinant of joint torque in humans.
TLDR
The results reveal that the muscle volume of the upper arm is a major determinant of joint torque (TQ), regardless of athletic training. Expand
Importance of body sway velocity information in controlling ankle extensor activities during quiet stance.
TLDR
The findings suggest that the actual postural control system during quiet stance adopts a control strategy that relies notably on velocity information and that such a controller can modulate muscle activity in anticipatory manner without using a feed-forward mechanism. Expand
Changes in muscle size, architecture, and neural activation after 20 days of bed rest with and without resistance exercise
TLDR
The results suggest that reduction of muscle strength by BR is affected by a decreased ability to activate motor units, and that the exercise used in the present experiment is effective as a countermeasure. Expand
Efficacy of tourniquet ischemia for strength training with low resistance
TLDR
The substantial gain in strength and maximal rate of torque development in I-leg demonstrated the efficacy of tourniquet ischemia during low-resistance training of short duration, and suggested the importance of neuromuscular and/or metabolic activity, other than high mechanical stress, to the adapting responses to strength training. Expand
Metabolic profile of high intensity intermittent exercises.
TLDR
It is shown that intermittent exercise defined by the IE1 protocol may tax both the anaerobic and aerobic energy releasing systems almost maximally. Expand
Decrease in maximal voluntary contraction by tonic vibration applied to a single synergist muscle in humans.
TLDR
The present results indicate that MVC and dF/dt(max) may be influenced by the attenuated Ia afferent functions of a single synergist muscle. Expand
Alternate muscle activity observed between knee extensor synergists during low-level sustained contractions.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that alternate muscle activity in the quadriceps muscle appears only between biarticular RF muscle and monoarticular vasti muscles (VL and VM), and its frequency of alternations progressively increases with time, and emerges under sustained contraction with force production levels < or =5.0% of MVC. Expand
Effect of gender on mechanical power output during repeated bouts of maximal running in trained teenagers.
TLDR
For trained teenage boys and girls, significant gender difference in mechanical power developed during repeated bouts of maximal running exists only in the initial phase of the task, when the difference in the volume of the lower limb muscles is normalized, and it may be a reason for a greater decline of mechanicalPower developed during the bout in boys compared to girls. Expand
Difference in aftereffects following prolonged Achilles tendon vibration on muscle activity during maximal voluntary contraction among plantar flexor synergists.
TLDR
Results demonstrated that prolonged vibration-induced MVC suppression was attributable mainly to the reduction of muscle activity in MG and LG, both of which have a larger proportion of fast-twitch muscle fibers than Sol, which suggests that Ia-afferent activity that reinforces the recruitment of high-threshold motor units is necessary to enhance force exertion during MVC.
