Integrated electromyographic (IEMG) activity of the vastus lateralis and vastus medialis muscles were recorded when normal male subjects performed isolated concentric and eccentric exercises on a special "sledge" apparatus, which was connected to a force plate. Four different submaximal energy levels were investigated in both exercise types. A single set of exercise included 80 contractions. The net mechanical efficiency was computed from the force plate record (mechanical work) and from the… CONTINUE READING
