The acute and repeated bout effects of multi-joint eccentric exercise on physical function and balance in older adults



The data set contains values for 13 individuals (above 60 years of age) who took part in the study (from November 2020 to November 2021). Data were collected at 5 time points (pre-, 0 hours, 24 hours, 48 hours, and 72 hours post-exercise) within each bout (two bouts in total). Data were collected in Bout 1 and then re-collected in Bout 2 with 14 days seperating them. The variable name in row 2 is named of the dependendent variable followed by the bout number, followed by the time-point within that bout e.g. cell D2 contains "STS1Bout24h", which means that the variable is the time taken to perform the sit-to-stand test (see nomencluture to the left) in Bout 1, which was assessed 24 hr post-exercise.

The variables assessed were functional measures (sit-to-stand time and timed up-and-go time), metrics of maximal muscle strength (maximal isometric torque and maximal eccentric force) and explosive muscle strength (RTD and J), metrics of balance (anteroposterior and mediolateral sway, centre of pressure velocity, path length, and maximal anterior lean displacement), muscle soreness and rate of percieved exertion during functional tasks and training.
