A new conception of dynamic or static muscular work tests is presented. The authors define the critical power of a muscular work from the notions of maximum work and maximum time of work. The work capacity is then considered in the case of dynamic work, and of continuous or intermittent static work. From the data presented it is possible to define the maximum amount of work that can be performed in a given time as well as the conditions of work performed without fatigue 
Task-dependent factors in fatigue of human voluntary contractions.
This chapter explores the hypothesis that fatigue is not caused uniquely by any common set of factors, but rather that the amount of stress placed on each site depends on the type of exercise from
Fatigue induced by static work.
TLDR
The introduction of rest periods of sufficient duration to ensure restoration of normal blood flow through the muscle is an effective way of delaying, or even preventing, the onset of muscle fatigue.
A study stressing the need for a static postural force model for work analysis.
TLDR
The aim of the present pilot study was to test MET in load situations that would indicate when the general model can be used or when a new static postural force model is needed.
The Phenomenon of Refusal in Muscular Activity. The Role of the Respiratory System
Among the factors leading to the refusal to continue muscular work, afferent impulsation carrying information about the efforts developed by the working muscles and about the respiratory function
The use of the relation between relative force and endurance time
The relation between relative force (i.e., the actual force relative to the maximal voluntary force) and endurance time (i.e., the time the force can be maintained) is employed in a number of methods
Critical power as an endurance index.
A phenomenological model of the time course of maximal voluntary isometric contraction force for optimization of complex loading schemes
TLDR
A mathematical model of the time course of MVIC force that can be efficiently employed to optimize complex loading schemes and enables an optimal use of MV IC force capacities is developed.
The application of the Critical Power construct to endurance exercise
Critical power (CP) is a theoretical construct reflecting the highest work rate that can be maintained by continuous aerobic energy resynthesis for an infinite period of time. In practice, however,
Critical power as a measure of physical work capacity and anaerobic threshold.
TLDR
Experimental results indicated that the maximal energy reconstitution rate (b) was correlated with the onset of anaerobic threshold (AT) as determined by the gas exchange method.

MAN AS A SOURCE OF MECHANICAL POWER
It is deduced from the published literature that the usable external power output of the body is limited in the following manner for the reasons stated : (1) In single movements (of duration less
Local muscle endurance with open and occluded intramuscular circulation.
The local isometric endurance of the elbow flexors of four groups of five female subjects was tested. Two groups had the circulation to the contracting muscles occluded by a pressure cuff and the o...
Blood flow and venous oxygen saturation during sustained contraction of the forearm muscles
TLDR
The effects of contraction of the forearm muscles on forearm blood flow have been re-examined, and venous blood oxygen changes accompanying sustained contractions of different strengths are recorded.
The blood flow through muscle during sustained contraction
TLDR
A further proof of the ischaemic nature of human muscle during strong contraction is given and the method shares this disadvantage, but has the advantage that it gives qualitative results concerning the blood flow through a single group of human muscles.
