Golgi Tendon Organs (GTOs)
receptors sensitive to the change in tension of a muscle and the rate of that change

- if too much tension develops or the onset of tension is too rapid, GTOs will cause the muscle to relax
- GTOs signal the muscle to relax after about 30 seconds of tension/contraction
- think SMR (foam rolling)
