  • Figure 1. Normalised mean EMG amplitude (P < 0.0001; time and interaction effects) and median spectral frequency (P < 0.0001; time effect) for the first and last 5 repetitions in vibrated (Vb+) and non-vibrated (Vb-) trials.

The aim of this study was to determine whether vibration alters the time course of neuromuscular fatigue during exercise and in early recovery in man. Eight subjects (4 males, 4 females, 23
