It has been suggested that during a skeletal muscle contraction the metabolic energy cost at the onset may be greater than the energy cost related to holding steady-state force. The purpose of the present study was to investigate the effect of contraction duration on the metabolic energy cost and fatigue process in fully perfused contracting muscle in situ. Canine gastrocnemius muscle (n = 6) was isolated, and two contractile periods (3 min of isometric, tetanic contractions with 45-min rest… CONTINUE READING
