This study attempted to determine the effect of eccentric quadriceps femoris, hamstring, and placebo fatigue on stance limb dynamics during the plant-and-cut phase of a crossover cut. Twenty female college students (task trained) were tested. Hamstring fatigue resulted in decreased peak impact knee flexion moments (p < or = .01), increased internal tibial rotation at peak knee flexion (p < or = .05), and decreased peak ankle dorisflexion (p < or = .05). Quadriceps fatigue resulted in increased peak ankle dorsiflexion moments (p < .01), decreased peak posterior braking forces (p < or .01), decreased peak knee extension moments (p < or = .01), delayed peak knee flexion (p < or = .01), delayed peak propulsive forces (p < .01), and delayed subtalar peak inversion moments (p < or = .05). Fatigue of either muscle group produced earlier peak ankle plantar flexion moments (p < = .05) and decreased peak propulsive knee flexion moments (p < or = .05). Variables requiring further study (p < or = .1) provide discussion data. Soleus, gastrocnemius, tibialis anterior, and deep posterior compartment calf muscles serve as dynamic impact force attenuators, compensating for fatigued proximal muscles.
