Abstract

The purpose of the present investigation was to examine the effect of concentric isokinetic leg extension training on the mean power frequency (MPF) of the mechanomyographic (MMG) signal. Twenty-one men were assigned into a training (TRN; n = 12) of control (CTL; n = 9) group. The TRN group performed six sets of leg extensions 3 days per week for 12 weeks at a velocity of 90°/s. All subjects were tested every 4 weeks for peak torque (PT), while MMG was recorded from the vastus lateralis. PT increased, but there was no significant (P > 0.05) change in the MMG MPF over the 12-week training period. These results indicate that MMG MPF, measured from the vastus lateralis, was not sensitive to training-induced increases in leg- extension strength, possibly due to competing influences of hypertrophy on the MMG signal and/or training-induced adaptations in muscles other than the vastus lateralis.
