THE POTENTIAL OF TOE FLEXOR MUSCLE TO ENHANCE PERFORMANCE  → FOOTSMART


INTRODUCTION/PURPOSE
– The metatarsal phalangeal joint (MPJ) and its crossing toe flexor muscles (TFM) represent the link between the large leg extensor muscles and the ground

METHODS

(1) 15 men performed a heavy resistance TFM strength training with 90% MVIC (2) 7 wks (560 contractions) for both feet (3) Measured jump height and distance
SIGNIFICANT RESULTS
(1) MPJ plantar flexion moments in the dynamometer (2) external MPJ dorsiflexion moments (3) jump distance in horizontal jumping increased significantly
