    Abstract

    During many movements (e.g., running, jumping, and kicking) there is little time for skeletal muscles to build up force, thus rapid force development is important. The length dependency of isometric force development was investigated in maximally activated rat medial gastrocnemius muscles in situ with intact blood flow at 35 °C. Depending on time available for muscle activation, the length dependency of force development was expected to differ from that of the maximal isometric force (F
