This study investigated the strength and size ratios between reciprocal muscle groups in the thigh and lower leg of soccer players. In 11 male collegiate soccer players and 21 male non-soccer players, the joint torques developed during isometric maximal voluntary contractions of the knee extensors (TQ(KE)) and flexors (TQ(KF)), plantar flexors (TQ(PF)) and dorsiflexors (TQ(DF)) were determined using a dynamometer. The muscle volumes of the same muscles (i.e. MV(KE), MV(KF), MV(PF) and MV(DF… CONTINUE READING
