Abstract

The process of neuromuscular adaptation in response to muscle stretch training has not been clearly described. In the present study, changes in muscle (at fascicular and whole muscle levels) and tendon mechanics, muscle activity and the excitability of the motor neurone pool were examined during plantar flexor stretches after 3 wk of twice-daily stretch training (4 × 30-s straight-knee calf muscle stretches; 41.0 ± 1.2 sessions).
