It was hypothesized that cycling, stretching or electromyostimulation inserted between sets during an isokinetic exercise would delay fatigue compared with passive recovery.
Therefore, the first aim of this study was to evaluate fatigue time course during an isokinetic exercise composed of six sets of ten maximal concentric contractions separated by three minutes of passive recovery.
In addition, the studies that used maximal eccentric isokinetic exercises to induce injury, elaborated models with higher angular speeds (Chen, 2003; Evans et al.
The objectives of this study were to propose a model for exercise-induced muscle injury by way of a maximal eccentric isokinetic exercise at low angular speed, and assess the time course of functional recovery of the injured quadriceps femoris muscle from the maximal voluntary contraction (MVC) torque and electrical activity (root mean square--RMS and median frequency--MDF).
