The described eccentric exercise protocol has been successfully established in previous studies (Hotfiel et al., 2017; Kellermann et al., 2017) and can be considered effective in inducing DOMS, as we were able to observe significant changes in muscle soreness, ROM of the ankle joint, CK level, intramuscular T2-weighted signal intensity, and T2 relaxation time.
