BACKGROUND The aim of the present study was to compare the changes in voluntary strength (isometric, concentric, and eccentric) and functional mobility in response to maximal isokinetic eccentric-only resistance training to those elicited by maximal isometric-only or maximal isokinetic concentric-only resistance training in older adults. METHODS Twelve women (73 +/- 7 years) and 18 men (73 +/- 5 years) completed a 12-week training program (three times per week) using a Biodex System 3… CONTINUE READING
