[b]Differential Adaptations to Eccentric versus Conventional Resistance Training in Older Humans.[/b]
…Conversely, pennation angle significantly increased in the CONV (35%), but not in the ECC (5%)
Isn’t pennation angle correlated highly with speed? If I remember, there are studies that show pennation angle being one of the most reliable descriminators between elite and sub-elite. Does this mean that conventional lifting, while making you stronger, also increases pennation angle, which reduces the functional potential of that new found strength?
