CONTEXT Fatigue appears to influence musculoskeletal injury rates during athletic activities, but whether males and females respond differently to fatigue is unknown. OBJECTIVE To determine the influence of fatigue on vertical leg stiffness (K (VERT)) and muscle activation and joint movement strategies and whether healthy males and females respond similarly to fatigue. DESIGN Repeated-measures design with all data collected during a single laboratory session. SETTING Laboratory… CONTINUE READING
