The purpose of this study was to determine the effects of speed, hip angle, knee angle, and gravity on hamstring to quadriceps (H/Q) torque ratios. Eighteen healthy college-aged men performed three maximal-effort knee extension and flexion repetitions on a Cybex II isokinetic dynamometer at speeds of 15 and 90 degrees /sec. Hamstring and quadriceps torques(More)
