Peak Ankle Muscle Activity of Faster and Slower Basketball Players during the Change-of-Direction Step in a Reactive Cutting Task

Posted on

Basketball requires frequent direction changes during match-play under reactive conditions. The ankle dynamic stabilizer muscles (Tibialis Anterior [TA], Peroneus Longus [PL], Peroneus Brevis [PB], soleus) may influence cutting effectiveness. This study examined whether ankle muscle activity differentiated between faster and slower basketballers in a reactive cutting task.
