The percent slow-twitch fibers (%ST) of the vastus lateralis muscle and selected indicators of maximum aerobic power (QO2, VO2 max, and leg extensor VO2 max) were compared with the rate of fatigue development during 45 s of repeated maximum isokinetic leg extension-flexion contractions (180 degrees/s) on 13 males. Subjects with muscle respiratory capacities (QO2) above the mean (2,472 microliter O2 X h-1 X g-1) displayed a significantly slower rate of fatigue development than those subjects… CONTINUE READING
