The purpose of this cross-sectional study was to compare quadriceps muscle strength and fatigue between severely obese (body mass index 34 kg/m2) and nonobese adolescents. Maximal isokinetic torque and angle of peak torque as well as isometric torque at short (40° of knee flexion) and long (80° of knee flexion) muscle length were measured using an… CONTINUE READING
