PURPOSE The aim of the present study was to compare the effect of muscle length on the level of voluntary activation (VA) at short and long muscle lengths between children and adults. METHODS Thirteen prepubertal boys (10.2 ± 1.1 yr) and 10 men (23.9 ± 2.9 yr) performed 5-s maximal isometric voluntary contractions of the knee extensor muscles at three muscular angles (20°, 90°, 100°; 0°, full extension) interspersed with at least 60-s passive recovery periods. Single magnetic stimulations… CONTINUE READING
