Cronin, Neil; Rantalainen, Timo; Avela, Janne (JohnWiley & Sons, Inc.; American Association of Neuromuscular & Electrodiagnostic Medicine, 2015)Introduction: The short latency stretch reflex (SLR) is well described, but the stimulus that evokes the SLR remains elusive. One hypothesis states that reflex size is proportional to muscle fiber stretch, so this study ...
Stenroth, Lauri; Sipilä, Sarianna; Finni Juutinen, Taija; Cronin, Neil (Lippincott Williams & Wilkins; American College of Sports Medicine, 2017)Purpose: Older adults walk slower than young adults, but it is not known why. Previous research suggests that ankle plantarflexors may have a crucial role in the reduction of walking speed. The purpose of this study was ...
Medial Gastrocnemius Muscle Architecture Is Altered After Exhaustive Stretch-Shortening Cycle Exercise Kositsky, Adam; Kidgell, Dawson J.; Avela, Janne (Frontiers Media, 2019)Muscle architecture is an important component of muscle function, and recent studies have shown changes in muscle architecture with fatigue. The stretch-shortening cycle is a natural way to study human locomotion, but ...
Conditioning hops increase triceps surae muscle force and Achilles tendon strain energy in the stretch-shortening cycle Kümmel, Jakob; Cronin, Neil; Kramer, Andreas; Avela, Janne; Gruber, Markus (John Wiley & Sons Ltd, 2018)Postactivation potentiation can improve athletic performance, but the underlying mechanisms are poorly understood. This study investigated the effect of conditioning hops on triceps surae muscle force and tendon strain and ...
Repeatability and sensitivity of passive mechanical stiffness measurements in the triceps surae muscle‐tendon complex Walker, Josh; Bissas, Athanassios; Wainwright, Barney; Hanley, Brian; Cronin, Neil J. (Wiley-Blackwell, 2022)Measurements of muscle-tendon unit passive mechanical properties are often used to illustrate acute and chronic responses to a training stimulus. The purpose of this study was to quantify the inter-session repeatability ...
