This study aimed to clarify the relationships between isometric squat (IS) using a back dynamometer and 1 repetition maximum (1RM) squat for maximum force and muscle activities and to examine the effectiveness of a 1RM estimation method based on IS. The subjects were 15 young men with weight training experience (mean age 20.7 ± 0.8 years, mean height 171.3(More)
The purpose of this study was to examine the output properties of muscle power by the dominant upper limb using SSC, and the relationships between the power output by SSC and a one-repetition maximum bench press (1 RM BP) used as a strength indicator of the upper body. Sixteen male athletes (21.4+/-0.9 yr) participated in this study. They pulled a load of(More)
The definition of the dominant leg (lateral dominance) is not clear, and there has been little reporting related to lateral dominance in the legs. To uncover the practical factors influencing which leg to use as the takeoff leg in 1-legged jumping movements, this study aimed to investigate the subjective dominance side of fundamental movements and to(More)
This study aimed to examine the relationships between muscle power output using the stretch-shortening cycle (SSC) and maximum strength, as measured by the 1 RM (1 repetition maximum) test and the isokinetic dynamometer under elbow flexion. Sixteen trained, young adult males pulled a constant load of 40% MVC (maximum voluntary elbow flexion contraction) by(More)
Although jumping rope has been said to be a typical stretch-shortening cycle movement (SSC) from the dynamic analysis of muscle contraction, there are few research reports that focus on this point. Recently, the function of SSC of the legs with respect to the jumping movement has been evaluated using the rebound jump index (RJ-index). This study aimed to(More)
AIM Few studies have been conducted on the lateral dominance of stretch-shortening cycle (SSC) performance. This study aimed to make an index for evaluation of the ability to use SSC for powerful elbow flexion and to examine the lateral dominance of SSC performance in unilateral and bilateral athletes. METHODS Thirty-three male athletes (19.9+/-1 years)(More)
This study aimed to clarify the relationship between upper-body strength and bat swing speed in high-school baseball players and to examine the physical characteristics of home run hitters (sluggers). The subjects were 30 male high-school baseball players with national tournament experience at the Koshien Stadium. Bat swing speed exerted by full effort was(More)
Recently, right and left output properties exerted from specific muscle groups have been evaluated using special measurement devices such as an isokinetic dynamometer. However, it remains unclear whether the coach can properly evaluate muscle function corresponding to lateral specificity in athletes. This study aimed to examine the different output(More)
This study aimed to examine the relationships between muscle power output using the stretch-shortening cycle (SSC) and eccentric maximum strength under elbow flexion. Eighteen young adult males pulled up a constant light load (2 kg) by ballistic elbow flexion under the following two preliminary conditions: 1) the static relaxed muscle state (SR condition),(More)
