The purpose of this study was to determine whether initial muscle length influenced the extent of isometric force deficit following 20 in vitro lengthening contractions of the soleus muscle from Fischer 344 rats. Force deficit was evaluated following one of five protocols: (1) lengthening contractions from optimal muscle length (Lo) to 120% Lo; (2) lengthening contractions from 80% Lo to Lo; (3) lengthening contractions from Lo to 120% Lo but with a stimulation frequency that elicited the same… CONTINUE READING
