The main objective of this study was to explore the mechanical and electrical output of thigh muscles derived from a range of motion (RoM) of 90° (0–90° flexion, LR) and the three successive RoMs: 0–30° (SR1), 30–60° (SR2) and 60–90° (SR3). Thirteen men took part in the study. In view of the torque–velocity relationship and in order to render the test conditions as equivalent as possible, LR was tested at 90°/s while the corresponding velocity for all SRs was 30°/s. The findings indicated very… CONTINUE READING
