The relationships between knee joint isokinetic strength, biological maturity status and body size were examined in 14–16-year-old basketball players, considering proportional allometric modeling. Biological maturity status was assessed with maturity offset protocol. Stature, body mass, sitting height, and estimated thigh volume were measured by(More)
