PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to determine whether architectural characteristics of skeletal muscle differ by race. METHODS Skeletal muscle architectural characteristics and body composition were studied in 13 black and 31 white male college football players. Fat-free mass (FFM) and percentage body fat (% fat) were determined by hydrostatic weighing technique. Muscle thickness (MTH) was measured by B-mode ultrasound at 13 anatomical sites. Isolated MTH and muscle pennation angle (PANG… CONTINUE READING
