Proske, Uwe; Allen, Trevor J.

Evidence is provided for a mechanical event as the first step in the process leading to muscle damage after a series of eccentric contractions. Aspects discussed include the decline in active tension, increase in passive tension, shift in length–tension relation, soreness, swelling, and disturbed proprioception.
