When an isometrically activated muscle is stretched or shortened the isometric steady-state force after the length change is increased (residual force enhancement) or decreased (force depression), respectively compared to a purely isometric contraction. This behavior has been observed consistently from the single sarcomere to the whole muscle level. However, the results for voluntary contractions in vivo are controversial and there are no studies for maximal voluntary contractions of medium… CONTINUE READING
