The rate at which an individual can develop force during rapid voluntary contractions can be influenced by both the neural drive to a muscle and its intrinsic musculotendinous properties. We hypothesize that the maximal rate of force development across human individuals is mainly attributable to the rate of motor unit recruitment.
