Table 3 The amount of the mechanical work performed by the contractile element. The integrated values from the start of simulation through the instant of take-off. The added values for two legs (two contralateral muscles) are shown. Δ: difference between the values for the "All Muscles" model and for the "Extensors Only" model.

From: Contribution of non-extensor muscles of the leg to maximal-effort countermovement jumping
