... activation, greater positive muscle–tendon unit (MTU) work and a more motor-like function, particularly in the limb extensors. Conversely, with faster pedalling cadence, the same muscles exhibited a phase advance in muscle activity prior to crank top dead centre, which led to greater negative MTU power...

...A. A. Biewener; C. McGowan; G. M. Card; R. V. Baudinette SUMMARY The goal of our study was to examine whether the in vivo force-length behavior, work and elastic energy savings of distal muscle-tendon units in the legs of tammar wallabies ( Macropus eugenii ) change during level versus incline...

... microscope. Strains were measured for the tendon and three regions (proximal,middle and distal) of the aponeurosis. Muscle stimulation was accomplished through isolated ventral rootlets, allowing force to be graded in seven repeatable increments independent of muscle-tendon unit length. Peak strains(during...
