Flywheel eccentric overload exercise

Flywheel eccentric overload exercise

Researchers: Marco Beato and Stuart Mcerlain-Naylor

Brief summary:  The aim of the project is to determine the post-activation potentiation effects and chronic adaptations following flywheel eccentric overload exercise and to study optimal training protocol characteristics (e.g., inertia, volume, time window, rest periods, exercise type, biomechanical specificity). Such information may be paramount for athletes, coaches, and strength and conditioning practitioners wishing to optimise resistance training strategies and sporting performance through evidence-based practices.
