Some muscles have a greater capacity to work at high speed and to perform complex movements.
Other muscles can function at low speed.
And yet, the muscles of the neck and shoulder appear to be more efficient at working at high speeds.
A recent study suggests that these differences could be caused by differences in the composition of the two muscle groups.
A key finding is that the muscles in the neck, shoulder and hip are more mobile, and thus more capable of adapting to different tasks and tasks that require greater force.
This means that the ability to move the joint to a new position, such as performing a roll, could be reduced at higher speeds.
The researchers also found that the muscle groups that are most mobile also have the most energy storage capacity.
These muscles also have greater motor coordination and are more sensitive to a greater range of motion.
“This study shows how the different muscle groups function in the body at different speeds, and it provides some insight into how the body adapts to different demands in different situations,” said study co-author Jonathan Sargent, a professor of biomechanics and sports medicine at Ohio State University.
The findings were published in the Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research.
The research is being funded by the National Institutes of Health.
