  • It is not known why in vivo muscle specific tension increases following resistance training in humans but changes in muscle fibre‐type composition, increased single‐fibre specific tension or lateral force transmission might provide explanations. Lateral force transmission would increase specific tension but decrease contraction velocity, thus not affecting maximal power per unit muscle volume. In vivo muscle specific tension, power output and muscle volume were determined in the quadriceps… CONTINUE READING
