... behaviour during diagonal-style cross-country roller skiing at three speed and incline conditions to examine whether skiers can exploit energy-saving mechanisms of the muscle–tendon unit. We assessed lower leg muscle and muscle–tendon unit mechanics and muscle activity in 13 high-level skiers during...

... and their power output should be consistent with known muscle properties if the total duration of muscle activity is known. Using the Cuban tree frog, Osteopilus septentrionalis , I measured jumping performance from kinematics and used EMG measurements of three major jumping muscles to determine the duration...

... production. The force-rate cost could contribute substantially to the overall cost of movements that require cyclic muscle activation, such as locomotion. The effects of knee torque T knee on muscle fascicle length change Δ L fas and pennation angle change Δφ, as well as the effect of SEE force F...

... joint velocity calculated using the slack test method increased whereas V F decreased with muscle activation level ( P ≤0.03). Passive and low-level quick releases elicited higher V F values (≥41.8±10.7 cm s −1 ) compared with the ballistic condition (36.3±8.7 cm s −1 ), while quick releases applied...

...Boris I. Prilutsky; Robert J. Gregor SUMMARY There has been no consistent explanation as to why humans prefer changing their gait from walking to running and from running to walking at increasing and decreasing speeds, respectively. This study examined muscle activation as a possible determinant...
