The purpose of this study was to determine whether the magnitude of the activation force, defined as the force that must be applied to the load cell in order to activate the resistance arm of an isokinetic dynamometer, affected knee extensor torques. Twenty-four healthy female subjects performed resisted knee extension through the range of 95 degrees to 5 degrees knee flexion, with a 5-s rest between concentric and eccentric muscle actions. Six exercise sets, composed of the combinations of… CONTINUE READING
