Abstract

This study compared resistance-trained and untrained men for changes in commonly used indirect markers of muscle damage after maximal voluntary eccentric exercise of the elbow flexors. Fifteen trained men (28.2 ± 1.9 years, 175.0 ± 1.6 cm, and 77.6 ±1.9 kg) who had resistance trained for at least 3 sessions per week incorporating exercises involving the elbow flexor musculature for an average of 7.7 ± 1.4 years, and 15 untrained men (30.0 ± 1.5 years, 169.8 ± 7.4 cm, and 79.9 ± 4.4 kg) who had not performed any resistance training for at least 1 year, were recruited for this study
