Figure 2

(A) Changes in peak torque (PT) every 20 repetitions (rep = 1 frame) during 100 maximum isokinetic knee extensions. PT of the subjects treated with PW significantly decreased during the initial 40-60 contractions by approximately 20-25 % of the initial values, followed by a phase with little change. On the other hand, there was no statistical difference between Frame 1 and Frame 2 in HW, indicating that HW prevented the decreasing the peak torque during the first 2 Frames. HW, Hydrogen rich water; PW, Placebo water. (*p < 0.05 vs Frame 1, N = 10). (B) Changes in median frequency (MDF) every 20 repetitions (rep = 1 Frame) during 100 maximum isokinetic knee extensions. Although exercise significantly reduced MDF values during the first 2 Frames, there was no statistical difference between HW and PW in all Frames. HW, Hydrogen rich water; PW, Placebo water. (*p < 0.05 vs Frame 1, N = 10). (C) Changes in mean power frequency (MPF) every 20 repetitions (rep = 1 Frame) during 100 maximum isokinetic knee extensions. There was no statistical difference between HW and PW in all Frames. HW, Hydrogen rich water; PW, Placebo water. (*p < 0.05 vs Frame 1, N = 10).
