Collagen content and cross-linking are believed to be major determinants of tendon structural integrity and function. Sex and chronic resistance training have been shown to alter tendon function and may also alter the key structural features of tendon. Patellar tendon biopsies were taken from untrained men [n = 8, 1 repetition maximum (RM) = 53 +/- 3 kg], untrained women (n = 8, 1 RM = 29 +/- 2 kg), and resistance-trained (10 +/- 1 yr of training) men (n = 8, 1 RM = 71 +/- 6 kg). Biopsies were… CONTINUE READING
