We compared the contribution of central and peripheral processes to muscle fatigue induced in the ankle dorsiflexor muscles by tests performed during concentric (CON) and eccentric (ECC) conditions. Each fatigue test consisted of five sets of 30 maximum voluntary contractions at a constant speed of 50 degrees /s for a 30 degrees range of motion of the ankle joint. The torque produced by the dorsiflexors and the surface electromyogram (EMG) of the tibialis anterior muscle were recorded during… CONTINUE READING
