Quick Reference

The principle that motor units are usually activated in a fixed order of recruitment. The motor units within a given muscle appear to be ranked. The same motor units are recruited for a given force production. Units with higher rankings are recruited as the force needed to perform an action increases. Thus, more units are recruited as the force of a muscle action increases.
