Women are capable of longer endurance times compared with men for contractions performed at low to moderate intensities. The purpose of the study was 1) to determine the relation between the absolute target force and endurance time for a submaximal isometric contraction and 2) to compare the pressor response and muscle activation patterns of men [26.3 +/- 1.1 (SE) yr] and women (27.5 +/- 2.3 yr) during a fatiguing contraction performed with the elbow flexor muscles. Maximal voluntary… CONTINUE READING
