PURPOSE To examine the changes in performance of active plantar flexor muscles of rats by controlled dorsiflexion (i.e., stretching of muscles) at two angular velocities. METHODS Repeated stretches (30) at two velocities of ankle rotation [slow stretch (0.87 rads x s(-1) (i.e., 50 degrees x (s-1))), fast stretch (10.47 rad x s(-1) (i.e., 600 degrees x s-1))] were superimposed on maximally active muscles from an ankle position of 1.57 rad to 0.70 rad (i.e., from 90 degrees to 40 degrees… CONTINUE READING
