Acute effects of stretching on the neuromechanical properties of the triceps surae muscle complex

Abstract

Previous research has shown that an acute bout of passive muscle stretching can diminish performance in certain movements where success is a function of maximal force and/or power output. Two possible mechanisms that might account for such findings are a change in active musculotendinous stiffness and a depression of muscle activation. To investigate the… (More)
