Intensity-dependent EMG response for the biceps brachii during sustained maximal and submaximal isometric contractions

Abstract

There have been recent attempts to characterize the mechanisms associated with fatigue-induced task failure. We compared the time to failure and the corresponding changes in the surface electromyogram (EMG) during sustained maximal and submaximal isometric force tasks. EMG activity was measured from the biceps brachii of 18 male participants as they… (More)
