SummaryIn an exercise consisting of repetitive small jumps on both feet at a frequency of 116/min, the mechanical work performed and the O2 consumption at steady state were measured. Of the positive work performed in the jump only 40% appears to be due to the chemical transformations taking place in the contractile component of the muscle fibres; the remaining 60% appears to be due to the elastic energy accumulated in the elastic elements of the contracted stretched muscles of the lower limbs… Expand
