This study tested the hypothesis that changes in indirect markers of muscle damage following maximal eccentric exercise would be smaller for the knee extensors (KE) and flexors (KF) compared with the elbow flexors (EF) and extensors (EE). A total of 17 sedentary men performed five sets of six maximal isokinetic (90° s−1) eccentric contractions of EF (range of motion, ROM: 90°–0°, 0 = full extension), EE (55°–145°), KF (90°–0°), and KE (30°–120°) using a different limb with a 4–5-week interval… CONTINUE READING
