ABSTRACT
The article presents a study which aimed to determine the effects of a four-week maximal-intensity resistance training on strength and function in patients with incomplete spinal cord injury (SCI). Participants of the study were involved to a maximal-intensity isometric training or conventional progressive resistance training in four weeks with a two-month break in between. The study revealed that the training has increased the participants' isometric strength while decreasing spasticity.
