Muscular contractions during human movement, and sport, are voluntary, and even maximal contractions are not performed at constant levels of activation. It has been proposed that during human voluntary contractions, activation may be increased when a muscle or muscle group contracts at full effort but the contractile conditions are not well-suited for large force production. For example, Hasler et al. (1994) argued that maximal voluntary activation of the knee extensor muscles (as recorded by surface electromyography, EMG) was increased towards full knee extension compared with levels of EMG at intermediate knee angles.

A) Force–time curves for two separate, fully activated contractions, one at a length L1, the other at a length L2. In both contractions, a steady-state force is measured, F1 and F2, respectively. (b) Force–length curve illustrating how the results of the experiment shown in (a) are used to determine the force–length relationship. Note that it is not possible to take a fully activated muscle and stretch it from L1 to L2 (or shorten it from L2 to L1) such that the force trace follows that shown in (b), because of the static, discontinuous nature of the force–length relationship.
