Our muscle architecture results agree with those by Reeves and colleagues (28) who evaluated 9 subjects that performed a 14-wk conventional strength training program that consisted of concentric and eccentric muscle actions and 10 subjects that performed a 14-wk knee extensor eccentric training program.
Earth's orbital eccentricity, for example, is 0.017, while Mercury, which is the most eccentric planet in our solar system, has an eccentricity of 0.205.

MATERIAL AND METHODS: This study included 60 patients with severe Achilles tendon pain and who had been referred to us as candidates for surgical treatment The study protocol was approved by the ethics committee of the Kempegowda institute of medical sciences (KIMS) Medical Faculty, Patients were randomized to treatment either with eccentric calf muscle training or with concentric calf muscle training.
The EMG spectrum from eccentric, concentric muscle contractions and increased serum levels of muscle proteins such as creatine kinase (CK) in humans were studied as a factor of mechanical damage of muscle fiber and functional change of metabolic tissue [13,14].
