Assessing the force-velocity characteristics of the leg extensors in well-trained jumping athletes: the incremental load power profile. J Strength Cond Res 22: 1320-1326, 2008-The purpose of this research project was to evaluate the methodology of an iso-inertial force-velocity assessment utilizing a range of loads and a group of high-performance athletes. A total of 26 subjects (19.8 ± 2.6 years, 196.3 ± 9.6 cm, 88.6 ± 8.9 kg… Expand

Tables and Topics from this paper

Reliability of the Load-Velocity Relationship and Validity of the PUSH to Measure Velocity in the Deadlift.
TLDR
The findings revealed that intermediate intensities seem to be reliable and extreme points of the load-velocity curve were found to be less reliable and should therefore be used with caution when implemented as part of autoregulating strategies. Expand
Three Methods of Calculating Force-Time Variables in the Rebound Jump Squat
TLDR
The results suggested that force-time variables that assess rate of force development relative to peak force produce significantly different values, but these values are highly correlated whether the concentric phase is included in the analysis or the eccentric and concentric phases are included inThe analysis. Expand
Sensitivity of the novel two-point force-velocity model: an assessment of leg muscle mechanical capacities.
TLDR
The recently proposed two-point force-velocity (F-V) model requires further evaluation in order to develop into a simple tool for muscle mechanical capacities assessment and could provide sport practitioners with a straightforward and very effective tool for assessing Muscle mechanical capacities. Expand
Optimal Force-Velocity Profile in Ballistic Push-off: Measurement and Relationship with Performance
TLDR
In this chapter, the relationship between the different lower limb muscle mechanical capabilities and ballistic push-off performances is explored and a biomechanical model is presented to bring new insights on the effect of F-v profile on ballistic performances. Expand
A Rationale for Assessing the Lower-Body Power Profile in Team Sport Athletes
TLDR
The use of a 0-kg load is superior for the development of jump squat maximal power, with moderate to very large declines in power output observed at 10- to 60-kg loads, yet, performance of heavier load jump squats that are substantially different to the optimal load are important in theDevelopment of sport-specific force-velocity qualities and should not be excluded. Expand
Peak Power, Force, and Velocity During Jump Squats in Professional Rugby Players
TLDR
In resistance trained professional rugby players, the optimal load for eliciting PPO during the loaded JS in the range measured occurs at 20% 1RM JS, with decreases in PPO and BV, and increases in VGRF, as the load is increased, although greater PPO likely occurs without any additional load. Expand
The reliability of isoinertial force–velocity–power profiling and maximal strength assessment in youth
TLDR
Isoinertial force–velocity–power profiling and maximal strength in youth can be assessed after a familiarization session and may provide valuable insight into neuromuscular capabilities during growth and maturation and may be used to monitor specific training adaptations. Expand
External loading and maximum dynamic output in vertical jumping: the role of training history.
TLDR
The results suggest that the human muscular system of the lower limbs could be designed to produce the maximum power output against the loads that are well below the mass and inertia of the human body. Expand
Force–velocity property of leg muscles in individuals of different level of physical fitness
TLDR
The observed parameters could be sensitive enough to detect the differences among both the individuals of different physical fitness and various jump types, and support using loaded vertical jumps and, possibly, other maximum performance multi-joint movements for the assessment of mechanical properties of active muscles. Expand
Are the Parameters of Novel Two-Point Force-Velocity Model Generalizable in Leg Muscles?
TLDR
Mechanical capacities of the leg muscles can be partially generalized between different functional tests, and the relationships were stronger between power variables than between force variables and somewhat stronger between standard tests and two-point parameters. Expand

TLDR
This investigation suggests that athletes specifically trained via both maximal strength and power training methods may generate their maximal power outputs at higher percentages of 1RM than those previously reported for solely strength-trained athletes and that there would appear to be an effective range of resistances for maximizing power output.

The results of the current study support the use of a 30 continuous and dynamic BT protocol as a reliable upper-body physical performance test, which can be administered with minimal practice. Expand
Effects of external loading on power output in a squat jump on a force platform: A comparison between strength and power athletes and sedentary individuals
TLDR
The present results suggest that the effects of external loading on peak instantaneous power are not significant in strength and power athletes provided that the loads do not prevent peak velocity from being higher than the velocity that is optimal for maximal power output. Expand
The Effect of Heavy‐ Vs. Light‐Load Jump Squats on the Development of Strength, Power, and Speed
TLDR
This investigation indicates that training with light-load jump squats results in increased movement velocity capabilities and that velocity-specific changes in muscle activity may play a key role in this adaptation. Expand

Investigation of the relationship of the 1 repetition maximum (1RM) squat to power output during countermovement and static weighted vertical squat jumps suggests that improving maximum strength should be a primary component of training programs and that strength training should shift from lighter to heavier loads.
