ABSTRACTThe purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of increased saddle height on the length and activity pattern of vastus lateralis (VL) and biceps femoris (BF) muscle. To compare the effects of increased saddle height, Preferred (self-selected height of subject) and High saddle height (approximately 5% higher saddle height than self-selected) were used. Seven elite cyclists (career: 16.1±8.5 years) participated in 3 min. sub-maximal pedaling tests under the same cadence (90 RPM) and pedaling p…
