consideration with respect to the fatigue response. There are well-known differences between men and women in terms of anthropometrics, muscle size, and muscle fiber content ( Ditor & Hicks, 2000 ; Hicks, Kent-Braun, & Ditor, 2001 ; Hunter, Critchlow, & Enoka, 2004 ), and recent studies suggest differences in

If the ACL is most strongly associated with muscle size in maturing females, can we “train the ACL” to better withstand external loads through progressive resistance training? Resistance exercises used in current ACL-injury-prevention programs are

to the fact that they examined TrA muscle size after a short-term SE program consisting 12 sessions in 4 weeks. Moreover, they also evaluated TrA muscle dimension in supine position. Our study contained 18 sessions of SE in 6 weeks, and the muscle thickness changes were normalized relative to resting

, these challenges come at a cost. For these women, their participation in combat sports leads to feelings of feminine insecurity due to their increased muscle size, strength, and fighting ability. One strategy for dealing with this is to find intimate partners whom they consider more masculine than them

Candidate mechanisms governing those changes include reduced muscle size and force-generating capacity and/or altered neural control of distal leg muscles—unfavorable changes that are certain to place functional limitations on the maximum walking speed. 7 It is less clear what governs push-off intensity or
