The inability of a muscle that spans two or more joints to be stretched sufficiently to produce a foil range of motion in all the joints simultaneously.

Passive insufficiency occurs when the muscle cannot be stretched enough to permit full range of motion at both joints at the same time. Examples:
- biceps femoris during knee extension and hip flexion
- quadriceps femoris during knee flexion and hip extension

Passive insufficiency of the multijoint muscles of the extensors of the wrist and fingers should limit finger and wrist flexion when they are performed together. Greater range of motion of wrist flexion should be possible with the fingers extended.
