Abstract: Despite the fact that everyday movements are hardly ever performed with muscles contracting maximally, our understanding of the force-length relationship is mostly based on in vitro studies using maximal activation. In this study, the in vivo submaximal and maximal force-length relationships of vastus-lateralis were investigated. Force-length relationships were obtained based on maximal and submaximal levels of force and, also, onEMG activation.
