BACKGROUND Muscle power is more relevant to the activities of daily living than is isometric strength. However, dynamic contractions have received little attention as they relate to the effect of age on muscle fatigue, particularly in very old persons. Thus, the purpose of this study was to investigate fatigue of the dorsiflexors during a velocity-dependent (isotonic) power task in 12 young (26 years), 12 old (64 years), and 12 very old (84 years) men. METHODS The fatigue protocol involved 25… CONTINUE READING
