This study investigated the effect of lengthening contraction velocity on exercise-induced muscle damage. Methods: Sixteen men were placed into two groups performing either 30 (N = 8) or 210 (N = 8) maximal lengthening contractions of the elbow flexors on an isokinetic dynamometer. Dominant and nondominant arms were randomly assigned for a slow-velocity (5: 30°s -1) or
