Although a relative preservation of eccentric (ECC) strength with age has been reported previously, this phenomenon has not been studied in lower leg muscles. Concentric (CONC) and ECC plantar (PF) and dorsiflexion (DF) in healthy active older women (OW; n = 16, age = 67 +/- 4 years) and younger women (YW; n = 16, age = 27 +/- 4 years) were studied. Passive resistive torque of the plantar flexors and average rate of torque development (RTD) for both DF and PF were also measured. The OW had CONC… CONTINUE READING
