This study examined exercise-induced muscle damage, repair, and adaptation in 10 college age women and 10 women over age 60. On two sessions spaced 7 days apart, subjects performed an eccentric exercise of the forearm flexors consisting of 24 muscle actions at an intensity of 115% of isometric strength.

The exercise resulted in similar changes… CONTINUE READING
