  • SummaryFatigue may be defined as a reduction in the maximal force-generating capacity of a muscle. It may result from peripheral processes distal to the neuromuscular junction and from central processes controlling the discharge rate of motoneurons. When assessed with a sensitive test using twitch interpolation, most “maximal” voluntary contractions approach but do not attain optimal muscle output. During fatigue, reflex inputs from intramuscular receptors may contribute to a decline in motor… CONTINUE READING
