Abstract

INTRODUCTION: In order to reveal how load, length of muscles, velocity of stretch and other factors affect the storage and the utilization of the elastic energy, lower limb muscular eccentric contraction in take-off phase of jumping were studied. In the past, Many studies about this topic was based on muscles in vitro, but this paper was based on muscles in vivo and from the perspective of movement structure.
