  • AbstractPurposeFatigue in leg muscles might differ between running and cycling due to inherent differences in muscle activation patterns. Moreover, postural demand placed upon the diaphragm during running could augment the development of diaphragm fatigue.Methods We investigated quadriceps and diaphragm fatigue in 11 runners and 11 cyclists (age: 29 ± 5 years; $$\dot{V}$$V˙O2,peak: 66.9 ± 5.5 ml min−1 kg−1) by assessing quadriceps twitch force (Qtw) and transdiaphragmatic twitch pressure (Pdi… CONTINUE READING
