Seventy-seven female office workers (25-46yrs) with and without neck/ shoulder pain were observed with respect to self-reported pain (NRS101), pressure-pain threshold (PPT), maximum voluntary contraction (Fmax) and rate of force development (RFD) at baseline (pre-intervention), immediately post-intervention and 48 hours post-intervention.
In elderly subjects, HTS has been shown to produce improvements in muscle strength by about 40 percent and mass by about 10 percent that are as good as or better than those achieved with a knee flexion machine with 30 percent of the maximum voluntary contraction .
For maximum voluntary contraction (MVC) tests, subjects were instructed to push into extension as hard as possible using strong verbal encouragement.
A quantitative amplitude analysis provided data on muscle function at rest and during moderate and maximum voluntary contractions.
Elliott: Acute Effects of Static Stretching, Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation Stretching, and Maximum Voluntary Contractions on Explosive Force Production and Jumping Performance, Red.
While it has been shown that people with stroke generate secondary forces in constrained patterns during maximum voluntary contractions , at submaximal effort levels people can generate movement and force outside of these patterns [5,20].
Methods: Twelve subjects performed 2 min of strenuous isometric handgrip (IHG) exercise at 40% maximum voluntary contraction to elevate forearm muscle lactic acid.
This may be the rationale behind the recommendation of the 30% maximum voluntary contraction (MVC).
