The purpose of this study was to examine the covariate influence of fat-free weight (FFW) on age-related increases in isokinetic peak torque for leg flexion and extension in high school female gymnasts. Seventy-two gymnasts (X age +/- SD = 15 7 +/- 1.2 yr) volunteered to be measured for isokinetic leg flexion and extension strength using a calibrated Cybex II dynamometer at 30, 180, and 300 degrees*s(-1) as well as for body composition from underwater weighing. The results indicated that there… CONTINUE READING
