It is known that the maximal forces applied during eccentric movements are generally higher than the maximal forces applied in concentric or isometric contractions. In training theory this phenomenon has so far been regarded as a deficit: that means, a subject with high eccentric vs. isometric force values is in a bad training state. In the article the… (More)
