eccentric strength of DL and NDL at 48 hours were lower than in C ( P  < .05) (Table  6 ). In SEPT/1:8, KF eccentric strength of DL at 24 and 48 hours and KF eccentric strength of NDL were lower than in C ( P  < .05). However, no differences were observed between the 2 SEPT trials.

, the eccentric strength (torque) during stretch increased as velocity increased from 15 deg/s up to 120 deg/s and plateaued in velocities greater than this value. Eccentric strength at 15 deg/s was 20% and 40% greater than isometric strength in young and old men, respectively, while at 360 deg

pronounced in eccentric strength of KF and concentric strength of KE; (2) a 5-week periodized CT program not only attenuated the decline of strength/power performance observed during off-season detraining but also enhanced it; and (3) deterioration of endurance performance due to off-season detraining cannot

development of more coordinated energy absorption strategies that increase percent contributions of at ankle and knee joints during loading and attenuation, respectively. Increasing eccentric strength is vital to ensure integrity and control of the lower extremity. 2 Thus, the improvement of eccentric

decreased maximal elbow angle, energy absorption, elbow joint moment, and increased force under the hand during a forward descent at three body angles. Additionally, we hypothesized that older women would have decreased UE concentric, isometric, and eccentric strength and decreased trunk activation when

, respectively. Maturity-related inadequacies in eccentric strength and balance might influence the lack of training specificity with the unilateral landings and propulsions associated with sprinting. Based on this meta-analysis, strength training should be incorporated prior to power training to establish an

attributed the greater CoD improvements to the increased braking ability generated by the enhanced eccentric workload associated with loaded training. Sheppard and Young 27 suggest that PJT can improve eccentric strength of the thigh muscles, an important determinant of performance during the deceleration

, isokinetic strength testing with the Biodex system. 17 They measured concentric and eccentric strength with 60°/s. However, this study was excluded because single-leg strength was assessed, but not double-legged 1RM measurements as in the other studies. In this systematic review and meta-analysis, no
