Cycling exercise to resist electrically stimulated antagonist increases oxygen uptake in males: Pilot study

Hiroo Matsuse, MD, et al.

We developed a hybrid training system (HTS) that combines electrical stimulation and volitional contractions; it uses the electrically stimulated eccentric antagonist muscle contractions as a resistance to voluntary agonist muscle contractions. This study evaluated the difference in oxygen uptake kinetics between HTS and volitional contractions. The results showed that HTS could significantly increase oxygen uptake. HTS is a new technique that may increase metabolic cost by using the combined stimulation and contractions as exercise resistance to voluntary agonist muscle contractions.
