Motor output is more variable during eccentric compared with concentric contractions.


PURPOSE This study examined the ability of 10 young (25.3 +/- 2.8 yr) healthy individuals to control knee-extension force during several discrete concentric and eccentric contractions. METHODS Subjects performed maximal and submaximal tasks on a KIN-COM isokinetic dynamometer. The submaximal tasks were to match a force-time parabola with a time to peak… (More)
