To assess the presence of laterality between conditions and loads, combined EMG activity of the triceps surae muscles within the same leg was compared using a 5 x 3 univariate ANOVA (P=0.
When combining the EMG amplitudes from all the conditions (Figure 4), the dominant leg elicited greater normalized EMG activity compared to the non-dominant for each triceps surae muscle (P=0.
