SummaryFour male subjects aged 23–34 years were studied during 60 days of unilateral strength training and 40 days of detraining. [...] Key Method At the start and at every 20th day of training and detraining, isometric maximal voluntary contraction (MVC), integrated electromyographic activity (iEMG) and quadriceps muscle cross-sectional area (CSA) assessed at seven fractions of femur length (Lf), by nuclear magnetic resonance imaging, were measured on both trained (T) and untrained (UT) legs.Expand
