Abstract

Electrical stimulation (ES) in muscles has widely applied in muscle strength training as a training method. It was proven to greatly enhance muscle strength. The purpose of this study was to examine the changes in muscle flexibility in the training of muscle strength with the use of electrical stimulation. The experiment demonstrated that the use of electrical-stimulation in training (EST) could obtain the effects of the improvement in both of muscle strength and flexibility.
