Force enhancement in the human vastus lateralis is muscle-length-dependent following stretch but not during stretch
European Journal of Applied Physiology
Force enhancement is the phenomenon of increased forces during (transient force enhancement; tFE) and after (residual force enhancement; rFE) eccentric muscle actions compared with fixed-end contractions. Although tFE and rFE have been observed at short and long muscle lengths, whether both are length-dependent remains unclear in vivo. We determined maximal-effort vastus lateralis (VL) force-angle relationships of eleven healthy males and selected one knee joint angle at a short and long muscledoi:10.1007/s00421-020-04488-1 pmid:32892321 fatcat:ktltp23ufrg5rlxffhyxc44dja
