The hypothesis of this study is that a chronic program of physical strength

training, associates to effects of low level laser therapy (LLLT) can,

possibly, provide changes in genic expression of muscle and to promote an

enhancement of anaerobic muscle performance in humans.

Condition Intervention Phase
Healthy Young Male Volunteers Non Athletes Free of Metabolic Disease Joint, Bone and Muscles of Lower Limbs Free of Any Disease Device: Photon stimulation by low level laser therapy Phase 1

Study Type: Interventional
Official Title: Phase 1. Muscle Genic Expression Under Strength Training and Photostimulated by Laser.
