Table 1 Peak blood flow and the time taken to re ach the peak blood flow after a single contraction

From: Exercise-induced blood flow in relation to muscle relaxation period

  15%MVC 30%MVC 50%MVC
Peak BF (ml/min Mean ± S 149 ± 15 416 ± 41 488 ± 55
The time taken to reach the peak BF (s) 3.8 ± 0.3 4.7 ± 0.2 3.9 ± 0.2
The coefficients of variation (%) 23 12 14
  1. Data are obtained from after single contraction. Peak value of blood flow at 30% and 50% MVC were significantly higher than that at 15% MVC. Peak BF: Peak value of blood flow.
  2. *p < 0.05 as compared to 15% MVC
