Figure 5: A schematic diagram of the relationships between angle joint angle and DF torque in active (A) and passive (B) conditions, respectively. A and A′ represent the relationships between voluntary DF MVC torque and ankle joint angle before and after resistance training period. B and B′ represent the relationship between passive torque and ankle joint angle before and after stretching training, respectively. TR means strength training of dorsiflexors and STR means stretching training of calf muscles, respectively. #1 means active DF ROM before-test condition and #2 and #3 mean active DF ROM after training in STR and STR+TR, respectively. #4 means theoretical plot after resistance training only.
