Maximum power was calculated for each fibre bundle from its fitted force/velocity line (power=force × velocity).
The mean and S.E.M. for the seven fibre bundles are given, together with the velocity and force at which maximum power was produced.
P_{0} is the maximum isometric force, which is produced at fibre length L_{0}. V_{max} is the maximum velocity of shortening, which is the intercept between the fitted force/velocity curve and the velocity axis.
