Intervention programs are often sought to strengthen the Achilles tendon (AT) due to its high injury rate. Long rest periods between loading cycles have been found to increase collagen synthesis by tenocytes, suggesting rest duration may be important for tendon adaptation in vivo, however exercise programs comparing long and short rest duration have not been directly compared. Fourteen adults completed a 12-week progressive training intervention; training sessions consisted of 5 x 10 isometric plantarflexion contractions each of 3-s duration performed at 90% of MVC three times weekly...
