Decline eccentric squats increases patellar tendon loading compared to standard eccentric squats

Publikation: Bidrag til tidsskriftTidsskriftartikelForskningfagfællebedømt

Recent studies have shown excellent clinical results using eccentric squat training on a 25 degrees decline board to treat patellar tendinopathy. It remains unknown why therapeutic management of patellar tendinopathy using decline eccentric squats offer superior clinical efficacy compared to standard horizontal eccentric squats. This study aimed to compare electromyography activity, patellar tendon strain and joint angle kinematics during standard and decline eccentric squats.
