The purpose of this investigation was to describe and examine variations in maximal torque produced by knee extension, knee flexion, elbow extension, and elbow flexion through a range of joint motion. Subjects were young, healthy men (n = 16) and women (n = 15). Torque was measured isometrically and isokinetically using a modified Cybex apparatus. Isotonic(More)
This study examined the angular specificity and test mode specificity of strength training. Six males and six females (X = 22.6 years) were assigned to groups which trained either isometrically (90 degrees ) or isokinetically (30 degrees /second). They trained their left elbow extensors at 80% of their maximum voluntary contraction on a modified Cybex(R)(More)
The purpose of this study was to examine changes in peak torque of the knee extensor muscles for a group of subjects. In each of three sessions, six maximal isokinetic contractions (trials) were elicited from 12 men and 4 women without isokinetic testing experience. No significant differences occurred over sessions and trials, but there was a significant(More)
The purpose of this study was to examine changes in peak torque and to determine if an isokinetic measure of maximal knee extensor strength changed significantly in the presence or absence of submaximal isokinetic contractions. Twenty subjects were randomly divided into two groups. Group 1 performed three gradient submaximal isokinetic contractions prior to(More)
Increases in volume of the lower extremities have been demonstrated in some exercises of short duration and varied intensities. The purpose of this study was to determine if running on a treadmill for 15 minutes increased volume of the foot and ankle when compared with walking. Twenty-one volunteers walked during one treatment session and ran during another(More)
