Motor unit activation and force production during eccentric, concentric and isometric actions
Published inStudies in sport, physical education and health
The aim of the present series of studies is to examine force and myoelectrical activity in human forearm flexors and knee extensors during dynamic and isometric muscle actions. The main purposes are 1) to clarify the methodological issues regarding the measurements of maximal force, EMG and EMG power spectrum in eccentric, concentric and isometric conditions, 2) to examine the motor unit activation patterns during dynamic and isometric actions by following the behavior of the EMG power spectrum and by utilizing selective intramuscular fine wire electrodes, and 3) to examine the effects of fatigue on force production, aEMG and EMG power spectrum in eccentric and concentric actions.

Effects of eccentric and concentric isokinetic bench press training on dynamic strength, isometric force production and triceps brachii cross-sectional area Wanttaja, Ryan (2020)Background. Engaging in resistance training programmes is an integral part of the physical preparation process for athletes. The neural and morphological mechanisms underpinning eccentric contractions are notably different ...

Effect of ten weeks maximal eccentric and concentric resistance training on muscle force in physically active young men in isokinetic bench press Aalto, Antti (2020)Introduction. It has been long known that there are differences in eccentric and concentric force productions. Moreover, it has been known that eccentric and concentric resistance training effects differently on force ...
