This review examines the effects of short- and long-term static and cyclic mechanical loading on the mechanical properties of tendons. Tendons do not alter their mechanical properties after static and cycling loading that occurs during fatiguing contractions. Adaptations can occur after the application of long-term loading, but the strain magnitude must exceed a given threshold.
