We investigated the degree of local heat and swelling of the thigh muscles produced by exercise. Eleven university athletes aged from 19 to 23 years old performed isokinetic exercise of the right knee on a Cybex II. Then serial determination of thigh circumference and thigh temperature (up to 120 min after exercise) as well as serial magnetic resonance (MR) imaging (up to 60 min after exercise) was performed on both thighs. The circumference of the right thigh peaked at 5.6 +/- 2.1 min after… CONTINUE READING
