A comparison of electrical activity in the triceps surae at maximum isometric contraction with the knee and ankle at various angles

Abstract

The purpose of this study was to test the endurance of the soleus muscle, and to examine the joint position at which it is most active, while simultaneously suppressing the activity of the gastrocnemius. Ten young males performed maximum isometric contraction of the triceps surae for 100 s, and the endurance and plantar flexion torque of this muscle were… (More)
