Metabolic Effects of Eccentric Endurance Training
Metabolic Effects of Eccentric Endurance Training

The purpose of this study is to evaluate metabolic parameters in previously sedentary individuals before and after eccentric endurance training (hiking downwards). Study participants will regularly hike downwards over a difference in altitude of 540 meters during 8 weeks. For the opposite way, a cable car will be used. Metabolic profiles will be obtained at baseline and after the 8 weeks period of eccentric endurance exercise.
