Older adults are less fatigable than young during isometric tasks, but this apparent ability to resist fatigue is often abolished when dynamic actions are performed. These findings could indicate that the velocity component of dynamic contractions or the task performed is an important factor in explaining fatigability of older adults. However, it has not been evaluated systematically. The purpose was to investigate the differences in age-related fatigue of the knee extensors in 8 older (73.6±3… CONTINUE READING
