Both concentric and eccentric muscle activities are always accompanied by altered muscle length, known as isotonic force development (see resistive training, below). 25 1 Functional Anatomy of Skeletal Muscle l Origin tendon Muscle fibers Physiological profile Anatomic profile Pennation angle (angulation) Desmodromic contraction. This mode of muscle contraction is performed on electronically controlled training devices that are used for maximum power output protocols (total exhaustion), also used only in highperformance sports.

For example, injuries to the semimembranosus hamstring muscle during soccer games often occur in close proximity to the myotendinous attachments and are possibly due to the complex angulation of the proximal short fibers and the distal long fascicles of the belly that merge in the flat aponeurosis-like muscle tendon. More importantly, angulation of fibers or fascicles may be significantly different in a normally active muscle in comparison with an extensively trained skeletal muscle, due to intramuscular adaptive changes in the fiber architecture, including fiber hypertrophy (Gans and de Vree 1987).
