Fatigue and recovery contractile properties of young and elderly men

Abstract

The 24 h recovery pattern of contractile properties of the triceps surae muscle, following a period of muscle fatigue, was compared in physically active young (25 years,n = 10) and elderly (66 years,n = 7) men. The fatigue test protocol consisted of 10 min of intermittent submaximal 20 Hz tetani. The maximal twitch (p t) and tetanic force at 3 frequencies… (More)
