Correct Answer:
(C) …relaxation of the biceps brachii

Explanation:
Golgi tendon organs (GTOs) are proprioceptors located near the musculotendinous junction. They serve a protective feature and reflexively cause relaxation of the muscle that is experiencing the tension. Resistance training causes adaptations that help to reduce this inhibitory tendency. The two main concepts of proprioceptors that you need to remember are 1) GTOs inhibit muscle contraction and 2) “muscle spindles” activate muscle contraction.
