It is unclear whether the superiority of eccentric over concentric training on neuromuscular improvements is due to higher torque (mechanical loading) achievable during eccentric contractions or due to resulting greater total work. PURPOSE This study aimed to examine neuromuscular adaptations after maximal eccentric versus concentric training matched for total work. METHODS Twelve males conducted single-joint isokinetic (180°·s) maximal eccentric contractions of the knee extensors in one… CONTINUE READING
