Table 2 Determination of the relaxation time

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

  pre-Tpeak(sec) Tpeak(sec) post-Tpeak(sec)
15% MVC 2.0 ± 0.2 3.9 ± 0.4 5.7 ± 0.4
30% MVC 2.3 ± 0.1 4.6 ± 0.3 6.7 ± 0.3
50% MVC 2.1 ± 0.1 3.9 ± 0.2 5.8 ± 0.4
    (Mean ± SE)
  1. Data are the relaxation time calculated using the time to reaching peak blood flow after a single contraction.
