Abstract

INTRODUCTION: In sports science it is important to know the individual muscle properties for a proper planning of training. Computer simulations can be used to predict the effect of a change in muscle properties on special movements. For this purpose, the knowledge of the appropriate individual values of input parameters is necessary. The aim of the study is to investigate the individual differences of movement independent properties of the elbow extensors.
