Table 10. Steady-state force after SSC (human studies).
First author, year Steady-state force after movement (SSC condition/pure shortening condition; SSC condition/isometric reference condition) Contraction modalities (Conclusion of the article)
Fortuna, 2017 13% -21% lower compared to isometric reference contractionPartly higher compared to pure shortening contraction Dependent on the shortening velocity and the delay between the stretch and the shortening
Fortuna, 2018 17% -19% lower compared to isometric reference contractionHigher compared to pure shortening contraction Independent of stretch velocity/peak force
Hahn, 2018 8.6% lower compared to isometric reference contraction.Higher compared to pure shortening contraction RFE related mechanisms contribute to increased performance following SSCs
Seiberl, 2015 4.5% lower – 10.8% higher compared to isometric reference contraction Dependent on shortening amplitude
