Abstract

This thesis investigated the affect of exercise induced muscle damage (EIMD) on musculoskeletal stiffness (MSS), Achilles tendon (AT) stiffness and AT strain. Furthermore, this thesis determined the reliability of a protocol used to measure MSS with the aim to apply this protocol in the investigation of the EIMD associated changes in MSS, AT stiffness and AT strain. Three studies were conducted as part of this thesis.
