Functional relationships between the respiratory muscles and muscles performing dynamic work

  • A. M. Kulik


During training on the bicycle-ergometer a study was made of the electric activity of respiratory muscles and muscles participating in the work while on the bicycle-ergometer (gastrocnemius and femoral). The study was done on healthy individuals. A close two-way connection is established between the electric activity of respiratory muscles and muscles participating in dynamic work. Stabilization of electric activity occurs earlier in the working muscles than in the respiratory muscles. This fact points to the leading role played by afferent impulsation from the muscles participating in the dynamic work for the elaboration of respiration adequate for this work. On the other hand, a drop of the electric activity of working muscles was seen when conditions disturbing the established adequate respiration character were created in the individuals under study.
