Abstract

Tendon is an important structure in musculoskeletal system, which biomechanics affects the exercise performance and incidence of tendon lesions. The paper summarizes recent researches on the effect of exercise training on the tendon biomechanics. Compared with studies regarding bone or ligament, researches on tendon system were few in different aspects, which concentrated on the running and strength training. The results indicated that exercise influence biomechanics of tendon, the change was related to the age, workload, exercise model, and tendon's position.
