Example text

Thus, acute increases in angle of pennation could limit force production but chronic increases in the angle of pennation (resulting from hypertrophy) are advantageous for strength and power development. Muscle Fascicle Length Muscle fibers are arranged in parallel within a larger structure known as a fascicle (Chapter 4). Fascicle length is another muscle architectural component of interest. Similar to pennation angle, fascicle length tends to decrease with muscle shortening. Chronic changes CHAPTER 2 Biomechanics of Force Production in fascicle length may be an additional muscular adaptation to training.

Angular motion of bodily segments can produce linear and angular motion of the entire body. Angular kinetic and kinematic parameters have analogs to linear motion, and the angular analog to force is torque. Analysis of torque and leverage is critical to studying athletic performance. Torque (also known as moment) is the rotation caused by a force about a specific axis and is the product of force and moment arm length. The force may be directed through the object’s center of gravity (COG) (centric force), away from the COG (eccentric force), or multiple forces may be equal in size but opposite in direction (force couple).
