  • Biceps
  • In the fastest contractions, the agonist triceps and antagonist biceps muscles showed an electromyographic volley characterized by a slow wave with an initial negative and subsequent positive phases. (nii.ac.jp)
  • inhibition
  • On the other hand, in electrical stimulation with high-load isometric contraction, inhibition of the overexpression of cathepsin L and atrogin-1 mRNA in addition to calpain 1, calpain 2, and MuRF-1 mRNA was confirmed. (hindawi.com)
  • physiological
  • It is this neural training that causes several weeks worth of rapid gains in strength, which level off once the nerve is generating maximum contractions and the muscle reaches its physiological limit. (wikipedia.org)
  • ankle
  • Performance was assessed by the isometric force at ankle positions of 1.57 and 0.70 rad and the time to produce 50% of the maximal force at 1.57 rad. (cdc.gov)
  • Reductions in isometric force were greater at an ankle position of 1.57 rad than at 0.70 rad. (cdc.gov)
  • It also functions to 'lock' the ankle, as in toe-kicking a ball, when held in an isometric contraction. (wikipedia.org)
