However, a second-class lever provides a mechanical advantage (>1) as the effort arm is larger than the resistance arm. Most skeletal muscles produce single-joint movements that operate at a mechanical disadvantage thereby requiring muscles to produce CHAPTER 2 Biomechanics of Force Production additional force in order to overcome a resistance. Based on lever systems, it appears that the human body was designed to produce motion at higher speeds at the expense of the large force applications. MOMENT ARMS AND TENDON INSERTION The location of a muscle’s tendon insertion into bone is another factor contributing to maximal strength expression.

There are several physiological and biomechanical properties of skeletal muscle that affect one’s acute level of force/power production and subsequent increases in muscle strength that occur concomitant to training. Several properties are discussed in this chapter and others are discussed in subsequent chapters. , displacement, position, velocity, acceleration, is kinematics. The kinetics of force production embodies numerous mechanisms and interactions between the nervous, muscular, connective tissue, metabolic, and endocrine systems.
