Quick Reference

A situation that arises when a muscle spanning two joints contracts and affects the joints in two opposing ways. During running, for example, the rectus femoris produces movements at two joints when contracting. While one movement, knee extension, is required in a particular phase of the activity, the other movement, hip flexion, is contrary to the desired action during that phase.
