A number of studies have shown that squatting and its variations exhibits lower hamstring demands compared to measurements made on the quadriceps femoris (Escamilla et al., 2001; McCaw et al., 1999; Marchetti et al., 2018).
The solutions were given in 9-[micro]L aliquots with a Hamilton 1700 series gas-tight 25 [micro]L syringe with a 27 gauge/0.5 inch needle by intramuscular (i.m.) injection into the middle of the left hind limb quadriceps femoris. Rats were anesthetized and maintained with isoflurane inhalation to prevent trauma to the muscle during the injection.
