SummaryThe training effect on muscular endurance was studied by voluntary effort as well as electrical stimulation. The results were summarized as the followings:1.The endurance of the muscle was observed to be about 13% of final voluntary contractions higher by electrical stimulation than that by voluntary contractions.2.After the training for 12–13 weeks, the muscular endurance was increased by about 130% in voluntary muscle contractions. The number of contractions due to electric stimuli… 

Superimposed electrical stimulation comfortably improves the endurance of maximal voluntary contractions.

The superimposition of neuromuscular electrical stimulation extends the muscle ability to repeat maximal voluntary contractions and evidenced the ability of the superimposed electrical stimulation technique to make the mechanisms of muscle central fatigue inefficient.

The effects of two forms of isometric training on the mechanical properties of the triceps surae in man

The results suggest that increases in voluntary strength resulting from short term isometric training are not necessarily associated with a rise in the intrinsic involuntary capacity of muscle fibres to generate force.

Die Elektrostimulation im Sport und in der Rehabilitation

NMES is an appropriate means of adjusting longstanding muscle dysbalance regarding strength, endurance and improving oxidative metabolism in human skeletal muscle and was found to be the main determinant of fiber transformation.

Adaptive response of mammalian skeletal muscle to exercise with high loads

This review is concerned with the effects on muscle of chronic exercise using high loads. An attempt is made to assess the nature of the training stimulus, the rate of response of the tissue to the

Transcutaneous muscle stimulation to retard disuse atrophy after open meniscectomy.

Transcutaneous electrical stimulation may prevent muscle atrophy due to immobilization, thereby shortening rehabilitation time, and reduce postoperative knee swelling and pain medication.

Motor Imagery Practice and Increased Tongue Strength: A Case Series Feasibility Report.

The findings indicate that mental practice using motor imagery for tongue exercise may improve tongue strength in healthy individuals at risk for dysphagia and may thus represent a promising direction warranting further investigation in typically aging individuals and patients with dysphAGia and decreased tongue strength.

Postexercise hyperemia in trained and untrained subjects

Experiments with a foot pedal exercise, with and without occlusion of circulation to the leg, suggest that athletes and trained nonathletes have greater blood flow in the muscles during exercise than do sedentary subjects.

Effect of muscle strength and endurance development on blood flow.

Studies were carried out to investigate the effect of hand grip strength and/or endurance improvement on blood flow through the muscles involved. One group of subjects trained for strength developm...

Some factors modifying the expression of human strength.

The maximal pull of forearm flexors was increased and, in some instances, decreased in predictable fashion by a loud noise, by the subject's own outcry, by certain pharmacologic agents (alcohol, ad...
