    J Appl Physiol (1985) 107:1181-9. 2009
    ..Importantly, the decrease in Achilles tendon stiffness remained 30 min later, which may be an important etiological factor for muscle-tendon strain injury risk...

    J Appl Physiol (1985) 108:637-45. 2010
    ..Importantly, the different temporal changes in EMG and concentric joint moment indicate that a muscle-based mechanism was likely responsible for the force losses poststretch...
