The aim of the present study was to examine differences in thigh muscularity and dynamic torque between elite junior (15.7 +/- 0.2 years) and senior (22.6 +/- 2.4 years) soccer players. Cross-sectional areas of the total muscle compartment, quadriceps femoris, and hamstrings + adductors were determined using magnetic resonance imaging. Knee extension and flexion torque were also measured at 1.05 and 3.14 rad . s(-1). Neither junior nor senior players showed significant differences in cross… CONTINUE READING
