PURPOSE This study investigated whether flexibility training would attenuate muscle damage induced by maximal eccentric exercise. METHODS Thirty untrained young men were allocated to static stretching (SS), proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation (PNF), or control group (n = 10 per group). The SS consisted of 30 sets of a 30-s standard SS with a 30-s rest between sets, and the PNF included 5 sets of the 30-s standard SS followed by 3 sets of three "contract-relax-agonist-contract… CONTINUE READING
