Esp in response to collagen supplementation?


In young adults, routine measures such as isokinetic torque and isotonic strength of the knee extensors have typically revealed decreases on the order of 5-6% per week for the first several weeks of bed rest (e.g., 23% after 28 days) [10,11]. In older adults, 10 days of bed rest resulted in a loss of knee extensor peak torque and 1-repetition maximum (1-RM) that corresponded to a decrement of approximately 11-12% per wee
