The origin of the well-documented discrepancy between maximum voluntary and in vitro tetanic eccentric strength has yet to be fully understood. This study aimed to determine whether surface EMG measurements can be used to reproduce the in vitro tetanic force-velocity relationship from maximum voluntary contractions. Five subjects performed maximal knee extensions over a range of eccentric and concentric velocities on an isovelocity dynamometer whilst EMG from the quadriceps were recorded… CONTINUE READING
