Table 1 Baseline values (mean ± SD, range) in maximal voluntary isometric contraction torque of the elbow flexors (MVIC), one repetition maximum of concentric dumbbell curl (1-RM), and muscle thickness of biceps brachii plus brachialis (MT) for trained and non-trained arms in the eccentric (ET) and concentric resistance training (CT) and control groups
