Electrophysiologic measurements were made on the median-innervated thenar muscles and triceps surae in 17 weight-trainers (bodybuilders and weight-lifters) and in control subjects. In the median-innervated thenar muscles, the weight-trainers presented normal values for motor unit counts, reflex potentiation, and twitch contractile properties; however, the weight-trainers possessed a significantly greater (8%) median motor nerve conduction velocity. In the triceps surae, the weight-trainers… CONTINUE READING
