Muscle Coordination during an Outdoor Cycling Time Trial
Medicine and Science in Sports and Exercise, 05/07/2012Blake OM et al.
This study provides evidence that muscle activity is dependent on the terrain aspects of the cycle course as muscle coordination changes with the altered locomotor demands. The coordination patterns significantly covaried with power output, total muscle activity, mechanical efficiency, cadence, and gradient, which highlights the importance of recording these parameters under field conditions and/or careful reproduction of outdoor environments in indoor studies.
