While ankle ranges of motion were unaffected between the extended and flexed knee versions of the exercise, the combination of a more dorsiflexed ankle, reduced triceps muscle-tendon length changes and reduced ankle plantarflexion moments during the flexed knee exercise provided a biomechanical basis for previously unexplained observations regarding the role of the flexed knee exercise to elicit the intended changes within the triceps, specifically the Soleus muscle.
