BARBOSA, Danielli Aguilar et al. Acute response of clinical and functional variables in maximal exercise from contraction concentric versus eccentric. Rev. Bras. Ciênc. Esporte [online]. 2015, vol.37, n.1, pp.87-95. ISSN 0101-3289.

The aim of the study was to analyze and compare the acute responses of clinical and functional variables after a maximum force exercise of eccentric versus concentric contraction. We evaluated 46 male subjects were randomly divided into two groups according to the type of exercise. Comparing the groups no significant differences, but the analysis of each group, there was an increased sensation of pain (VAS), perceived exertion (Borg scale) and increases in measures of thigh circumference (eccentric group: 10% (p<0.001) 20% (p<0.001) 30% (p<0.05) and concentric to the group: measured with 40% p<0.01) for the algometer, only concentric group showed lower threshold (p<0.01). It can be inferred that stimuli controlled up to 100% are not aggressive and limiting, and future studies may include analysis of injury markers.
