The purpose of this study was to determine if the protective adaptation to a single bout of eccentric exercise (repeated bout effect) is dependent on the muscle length at which the eccentric contractions are performed. Ten subjects (six men, four women) performed two bouts of 120 isokinetic eccentric contractions separated by 2 weeks (target intensity was 90% of maximum isometric strength at 70°). In the initial bout one limb exercised from 30° to 70° of knee flexion (short initial bout; SIB… CONTINUE READING
