The Practical Utilization of Augmented Eccentric Loading
Eccentric muscle actions have considerable differences from concentric muscle actions. It has been demonstrated that the neuromuscular system can produce more force in eccentric actions, and at the same time have less electrical activity as measured by electromyography. This article discusses the most common way to apply augmented eccentric loading - through the use of depth jumps.
