Example text

Descending strength (force) curve. reactive force is seen by the barbell in response to the action force provided by the lifter. Critical to our discussion is that the response may differ even though the forces are equal and opposite. When the lifter applies the force to the barbell, the reactive force is equal; however, the barbell does move. Thus, similar forces can lead to dissimilar results in that the object with less mass, stability, and/or leverage may move despite similar kinetics. Action forces applied to an object or another body will be higher if stable contact is made between the two objects.

However, during acute exercise, the muscle’s angle of pennation may increase largely to account for contraction. As a muscle shortens during contraction, fibers must shorten to accommodate the change in muscle belly shape. As a result, muscle fibers rotate and become more oblique (changing contraction leverage) as the fiber shortens (5) thereby increasing the angle of pennation further. This changes the direction of force relative to the muscle’s line of action and limits force production. Thus, acute increases in angle of pennation could limit force production but chronic increases in the angle of pennation (resulting from hypertrophy) are advantageous for strength and power development.
