Quadriceps Concentric vs Eccentric

2018-08-21 20:18:13 | BioPortfolio


The aim of the study is to compare the effects of concentric and eccentric exercises on muscle strength, muscle thickness and balance in healthy Individuals. Participants will randomly be divided into 2 groups: Concentric exercise (CE) group, eccentric exercise (EE) group. Concentric exercise group will be doing 2 concentric exercises and eccentric exercise group will be doing 2 eccentric exercise for 8 weeks. The evaluations will be repeated after 8 weeks of training to reveal the effects of concentric and eccentric exercises.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Therapeutic exercises aimed to deepen inspiration or expiration or even to alter the rate and rhythm of respiration.

Exercises in which muscles are repeatedly and rapidly stretched, followed by shortening, concentric MUSCLE CONTRACTION (e.g. jumping and rebounding). They are designed to exert maximal force in minimal time by increasing STRETCH REFLEX.

Exercises that stretch the muscle fibers with the aim to increase muscle-tendon FLEXIBILITY, improve RANGE OF MOTION or musculoskeletal function, and prevent injuries. There are various types of stretching techniques including active, passive (relaxed), static, dynamic (gentle), ballistic (forced), isometric, and others.

Technique based on muscle relaxation during self-hypnotic exercises. It is used in conjunction with psychotherapy.

Works consisting of collections of practice questions and drills, generally for instructional or review use.
