In this study we investigated the contribution of neural adaptations to strength changes after 4 weeks of unilateral isometric resistance training. Maximal and submaximal isometric knee extension contractions were assessed before and after training. Surface electromyography (EMG) data were collected from the agonist and antagonist muscles and normalized to evoked maximal M-wave and maximal knee flexor EMG, respectively. The interpolated twitch technique (ITT) was also used to determine… CONTINUE READING
