The degradation of adenosine triphosphate, phosphocreatine and glycogen was determined in type I and type II fibres of the human quadriceps femoris muscle during intermittent electrical stimulation at 20 and 50 Hz, (1.6 seconds stimulation, 1.6 seconds rest). Seven healthy volunteers took part in the study. Muscle biopsy samples were obtained at rest and… CONTINUE READING
