, 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

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

exhibit less COM displacement and greater stiffness than untrained controls. 35 As eccentric strength underpins an athlete’s ability to overcome the negative acceleration of the COM at ground contact, it would be anticipated that trained athletes with higher strength levels are better able to tolerate
