Endurance training. (a) Electromyographic tracings of a patient with fecal incontinence (black tracing) showing inability to maintain sustained contractions (poor endurance) and characteristic sawtooth pattern indicating fatigue. (b) Electromyographic tracings of the same patient following pelvic muscle rehabilitation sessions revealing sustained contractions during each interval contraction.
