Females are less fatigable than males during isometric contractions across various muscles and intensities. However, sex differences in knee-extensor fatigability remain relatively unexplored. PURPOSE To determine the sex difference in performance fatigability for intermittent, isometric contractions of the knee-extensor muscles. METHODS Eighteen participants (10 males, 8 females) performed intermittent, isometric, knee-extensor contractions at 30% of their maximal voluntary force (MVC) for… CONTINUE READING
