This study quantified the interaction of integrated electromyography (iEMG) obtained from the vastus lateralis and the metabolic energy cost of running (Cr), an index to assess running economy, during 90-min prolonged running. The iEMG during running was divided into eccentric (ECC) and concentric (CON) phases using a force platform and a knee-joint goniometer. The ratio of ECC to CON (ECC/CON ratio) significantly decreased during 90-min prolonged running in novice distance runners, which would… CONTINUE READING
