Eccentric exercise training is widely known to initiate muscular hypertrophy and consequent eccentric strength gains. Moreover a number of recent studies (Gerber et al. 2007; LaStayo et al. 2000 and Gross et al., 2010; Leong et al. 2013) have demonstrated that eccentric cycling training can cause significant hypertrophy in the active muscle. In particular Leong et al. (2013) found a significantly increased maximum cycling power following an 8-week eccentric cycling training intervention. These outstanding results but also consistent requests from customers caused RBM elektronik-automation GmbH to develop an eccentric high performance cycling ergometer. We are therefore proud to announce the first commercially available eccentric cycling ergometer which can now be used for research, training and testing.
