The muscle fiber diameter (MFD), muscle fiber cross sectional area (MFCSA), muscle fascicle diameter (MFSD) and muscle fascicle cross sectional area (MFSCSA) decreased (p < 0.05) in HS group when compared to TNZ group, whereas they increased (p < 0.05) in T3, T4 and T5 compared to HS group.

Relevant adaptations were observed in muscle fascicle length (+11%), muscle thickness (+9%), pennation angle (+12%) as well as in leg extension power (+34%).
Structural changes that occur at the muscle fascicle level may include lengthening or shortening of the fascicle or a change in the orientation (i.e., pennation angle) of the muscle fibers as theyspan the muscle belly.
As the spine becomes flexed the erector spinae increase muscle fascicle length by an average of 39% of that in a neutral lumbar posture (Macintosh et al 1993).

Muscle fascicle length and pennation angle (i.e., the angle in which the fascicles insert themselves into the aponeuroses of the muscle) are two architectural parameters that can influence how a muscle generates force.
Because it has the advantages of being stable, easy to use, nonionizing, and capable of recording activities from deep muscles without cross talk from adjacent muscles [25], ultrasonography has been used to detect muscle thickness changes [26-27], pennation angle [28-29], cross-sectional area [30-31], and muscle fascicle length [32-34] both in static and quasi-static conditions during the past decades.
