from what we found. The aim was to explore residual force enhancement properties of a muscle across its entire length and for all parts of the force–length relationship. While doing these experiments, I realized that passive force following active muscle stretching (and deactivation of the muscle) was

Finding consistent and strong evidence for remote effects due to exercise, stretching, or massage would provide further evidence of the importance of myofascial chains in

popular recovery method. 2 , 6 The Kinesio taping (KT) is a type of elastic taping which stretches up to 140% of its original length. 7 Many studies showed that KT would have beneficial effects on soreness by ameliorating muscle function, 6 inhibiting muscle activity, 4 increasing blood and lymph
