Subjects laid prone on a massage table with arms extended (180[degrees]) where biceps brachii shear elastic modulus measurements were performed on both arms (always LV arm first) prior to exercise (PRE), 5 min after exercise (POST-EX), and 5 min after the recovery period (POSTREC) The 5-min delays post-exercise and post-recovery are explained by the time needed to perform other shear elastic measurements that were not included here.
