Eccentric exercise is unique in that it can lead to muscle damage and soreness. Concentric exercise is not accompanied by evidence of damage. There are reports in the literature that muscle fatigue is a factor determining the amount of damage from eccentric exercise. Our theory for the damage process predicts that susceptibility for damage is independent of fatigue. Experiments were carried out to test this prediction as well as to seek other evidence in support of our theory. Comparisons were… CONTINUE READING
