Abstract: Strength training can influence muscle-tendon mechanics and architecture, and provide a protective effect from exercise-induced muscle damage; however more data are required describing the specific influence of eccentric training. Therefore, the aims of the present study were to examine the effect of 6 weeks of maximal eccentric knee extensor training on these properties.
