Surface EMG signals from the biceps brachii (BB), deltoid anterior (DA), pectoralis major (PM) and triceps brachii (TB) on the right side of the body were collected.
11] provided evidence that there may be selective activation of fast-twitch motor units for the biceps brachii during eccentric, when compared to concentric muscle actions, which provides further support for the contention that the two contractions use different motor control strategies.

For instance, during concentric elbow flexion, the biceps brachii contracts concentrically, whereas the antagonist muscle, the triceps brachii, contracts mildly eccentrically--to allow movement precision.
