Peak ISOM force occurs at 0 m/s−1 (no movement) that is larger than peak CON force. The force disparity appears related to the number of muscle cross-bridges formed once again. Actin filaments slide rapidly at fast velocities, thereby making it more difficult for myosin to form cross-bridges with actin. As cross-bridge cycling rate increases, less cross-bridges remain intact at any given time. However, cross-bridge formation is enhanced at slow velocities and during ISOM actions where the cross-bridge cycling rate is low.
