Eccentric contractions are thought to induce greater low-frequency fatigue (LFF) and delayed-onset muscle soreness (DOMS) than concentric contractions. In this study we induced a similar amount of eccentric quadriceps muscle fatigue during either a concentric or eccentric fatigue task to compare LFF and DOMS. Subjects (n = 22) performed concentric or eccentric fatigue tasks using 75% of the pre-fatigue maximal voluntary contraction (MVC) torque, and both tasks ended when the MVC eccentric… CONTINUE READING
