However, the repeatability of lower limb muscles activation pattern during pedaling isnot fully established. Thus, we tested the intra-session repeatability of the activation pattern of 10 lower limb muscles during a sub-max-imal cycling exercise.Eleven triathletes participated to this study. The experimental session consisted in a reference s...
