Effects of smokeless tobacco on recovery time following a leg-extension exercise
MetadataShow full item record
The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of smokeless tobacco (ST) upon recovery time. Specifically, we wanted to investigate the effect of ST in the time to recover peak power (PP), peak force (PF) and maximal voluntary isometric contraction (MVIC) after a fatiguing leg-extension exercise. It was hypothesized that use of ST would lead to delayed time of recovery in muscular force and power following a fatiguing leg-extension exercise. It was also hypothesized that PF and PP would be lower, and time-to PF (TtPF) and PP (TtPP) would be higher, with use of ST than without.
