Abstract

Muscular strength and flexibility are two important physical capacities that are frequently assessed and trained in athletes before and during sporting competitions (Nobrega et al. 2005), but their interactions are not well established. The purpose of this study was to determine the acute effects of concentric and eccentric contractions on the range of motion (ROM), passive peak torque (PPT), stiffness and work absorption.
