Muscle Fascicle Length Changes of the Long Head of Biceps Femoris Muscle During Various Physical Activities
We predict that the muscle fascicles of the biceps femoris long head will behave similarly to the ankle plantar flexors in that they will undergo smaller length changes during dynamic activities (running, walking) and greater changes during static activities (single leg Romanian deadlift, standing hamstring curl).
