UNLABELLED Although the existence of "neural factors" is regularly cited as an important contributor to muscular strength, we have little specific knowledge regarding the existence of such neural factors or how they contribute to the expression of muscular force. PURPOSE The present investigation sought to assess maximal motor unit discharge rates in older, highly resistance-trained adults to determine whether maximal motor unit discharge rates might be one such neural contributor to maximal… CONTINUE READING
