The electric signals produced by muscle cells which are contracted are directly proportionate to the number of motor unit during static and dynamic contraction and strength generated (Arheim, 1989).
A non-linear relationship with muscle force of MDF and MNF are also investigated in a dynamic contraction [18] and in a large muscle [19].
There are several types of muscular contractions: isotonic contraction is the most usual muscle contraction that occurs with changing muscle length and determines joint movement, so it is considered a dynamic contraction; isometric contraction--muscle tension increases, but the muscle fibers length does not change, that is why they are also called static; isokinetic contraction--is a type of dynamic contraction in which the muscles contract at their maximum capacity on the entire range of motion (Damian, 2006).
However, the use of these strategies seems to be reweighted in a different way during dynamic contraction, with the recruitment of additional motor units playing a critical role in muscle force production (Sbriccoli et al.
Corroborating these findings, two previous studies analyzed maximal isometric and dynamic contractions (1RM) and reported similar EMG activity in the pectoralis major, anterior deltoid, triceps brachii, and biceps brachii muscles (2,6).
Results are consistent with the classical inverse relationship between torque (force) and velocity in that both PT and AVT were greatest when tested isometrically, followed by dynamic contractions at 500, 1000, 2000, and 4000 s-1 (Table 1).
More research is required on the mechanisms of the caffeine effect during static and dynamic contractions in addition to the efficacy of caffeine during more practical and relevant exercise models for sport and exercise performance.
Therefore, the mechanical energy needed to develop any useful tensions even in isometric contractions, that is, the aggregate, energy-generating work-rate achieved by sarcomeres, determines the time-rates and amplitudes of force developments by whole muscles in both isometric and dynamic contractions.
Research examining crossover fatigue following dynamic contractions is sparse.
