Abstract

Controversy exists concerning the susceptibility of elderly individuals to eccentric exercise-induced muscle damage. This study investigated the hypothesis that muscle damage induced by fast maximal lengthening contractions would be greater for old than young men. Ten old (64 ± 4 years) and young (25 ± 6 years) men performed 30 maximal voluntary lengthening contractions of the elbow flexors at an angular velocity of 210° s-1
