Nine subjects performed maximum contractions with the knee extensor muscles on an isokinetic device set at 4.36 rad/s. The knee extensions were preceded by isometric conditioning contractions of the antagonist knee flexor muscles. The conditioning contraction forces were 0, 25, 50, 75, and 100% of the maximum isometric force. The purpose of the study was to determine 1) the effects of graded conditioning contractions with the knee flexor muscles on the maximum performance of the quadriceps… CONTINUE READING
