    although it wasn't statistically significant, the results were certainly interesting.

    Hi all
    What they are telling you is that the achilles or more importantly is that the gastroc is not a plantar flexor, it is a knee extensor, ie the synergist of the hamstrings and quads, nothing else.

    Happily await the cries of damnation etc.
