Table 1 Mean peak muscle activation for the TBLH, BB, SP, and IF muscles for the pre-transition, transition and post-transition stride for each agility-specific task (Descend_hi, Descend_lo, Jump, Ascend_hi, Ascend_lo)

From: The magnitude of muscular activation of four canine forelimb muscles in dogs performing two agility-specific tasks

  1. a Peak amplitudes reported in this table have been normalized to the walking trials and should be interpreted as being x times that of the peak amplitude observed in the walking trials
  2. Data are presented for each task by stride (Pre-transition, transition and post-transition strides)
