Experimental protocol. Participants undertook five trials of 60-s elbow flexion MVCs (FAT). Before and after each FAT, one neuromuscular function assessment including a series of continuous 6-s elbow flexor contractions at 100%, 75% and 50% of their MVC was performed. During each contraction, transcranial magnetic (TMS), transmastoid electrical (TMES), and brachial plexus electrical stimulation (BPES) were elicited every 2 s. The time points for the post-fatigue measurement  were 0 s, 15 s, 30 s, 60 s, and 120 s, and were selected randomly for each participant
