Thirteen males and 7 females completed their maximum number of leg extensions against a half maximum load. In a randomised, crossover study they were exercised to fatigue using an ergonometer, ski-squats and leg extensions followed either by a 6 min massage or rest after which they again completed their maximum number of leg extensions against half maximum load. The process was repeated a few days later with the alternative condition (rest or massage). The results showed that massage after exercise fatigue significantly improved quadriceps performance compared to rest (p = 0.001). The data was further analysed in relation to age and gender.
