To evaluate the time-course of stretching-induced changes in mechanical properties of the muscle-tendon unit (MTU), 11 participants (age 22±1 yr; body mass 77±5 kg; stature 1.78±0.05 m; mean±SD) underwent tetanic electrical stimulations of the medial gastrocnemius muscle before and after (up to 2h) stretching administration. During contractions, surface electromyogram (EMG), mechanomyogram (MMG) and force were recorded simultaneously. From MMG, peak-to-peak (p-p) and root mean square (RMS) were… CONTINUE READING
