    • Sport-specific capacity to use elastic energy in the patellar and Achilles tendons of elite athletes 

      Wiesinger, Hans-Peter; Rieder, Florian; Kösters, Alexander; Müller, Erich; Seynnes, Olivier R. (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2017)
      Introduction: During running and jumping activities, elastic energy is utilized to enhance muscle mechanical output and efficiency. However, training-induced variations in tendon spring-like properties remain under-investigated. ...
    • Structure and function of human muscle fibres and muscle proteome in physically active older men 

      Brocca, Lorenza; McPhee, Jamie; Longa, Emanuela; Canepari, Monica; Seynnes, Olivier R.; de Vito, Giuseppe; Pellegrino, Maria A.; Narici, Marco; Bottinelli, Roberto (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2017)
      Contradictory results have been reported on the impact of ageing on structure and functions of skeletal muscle fibres, likely to be due to a complex interplay between ageing and other phenomena such as disuse and diseases. ...
    • Training Strategies to Improve Muscle Power: Is Olympic-style Weightlifting Relevant? 

      Helland, Christian; Hole, Eirik; Olsson, Monica Charlotte; Seynnes, Olivier R.; Solberg, Paul Andre; Paulsen, Gøran (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2016)
      Introduction: This efficacy study investigated the effects of (1) Olympic-style weightlifting (OWL), (2) motorized strength and power training (MSPT), and (3) free weight strength and power training (FSPT) on muscle power. ...

    • Training-induced increase in Achilles tendon stiffness affects tendon strain pattern during running 

      Werkhausen, Amelie Corinna; Cronin, Neil J; Albracht, Kirsten; Paulsen, Gøran; Larsen, Askild V.; Bojsen-Møller, Jens; Seynnes, Olivier R. (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2019)
      Background: During the stance phase of running, the elasticity of the Achilles tendon enables the utilisation of elastic energy and allows beneficial contractile conditions for the triceps surae muscles. However, the effect ...
    • Whole-body vibration training induces hypertrophy of the human patellar tendon 

      Rieder, Florian; Wiesinger, H. P.; Kösters, Alexander; Müller, E.; Seynnes, Olivier R. (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2015-07-15)
      Animal studies suggest that regular exposure to whole-body vibration (WBV) induces an anabolic response in bone and tendon. However, the effects of this type of intervention on human tendon properties and its influence on ...
