16 children with Cerebral palsy were randomly allocated to 24 sessions of strength training (ST) or velocity training (VT) on leg extensors. The study aimed to investigate the effects of each regimen on quadriceps muscle architecture, power, walking speed, and functional walking performance. After 8 weeks of program completion, rectus femoris fascicle length significantly increased in VT, while it...
