The Influence Of Inspiratory Muscle Work History And Specific IMT Upon Human Limb Muscle Fatigue

“The purpose of this study was to assess the influence of the work history of the inspiratory muscles upon the fatigue characteristics of the plantar flexors. It was hypothesized that under conditions where the inspiratory muscle metaboreflex has been elicited, plantar flexors fatigue would be hastened due to peripheral vasoconstriction.”


“The data are the first to provide evidence that the inspiratory muscle metaboreflex accelerates the rate of calf fatigue during plantar flexors, and that inspiratory muscle training attenuates this effect.”
