The standard strength test (SST) has been based only on sustained maximum forces, as well as on relatively large number trials needed to record the maximum forces (F) and their rate of development (RFD). The aim of this study was to extend our recent research on alternating consecutive maximum contractions (ACMC) performed by antagonist muscles. Instead of varying the frequency, we explored the properties of ACMC performed at the self-selected frequency and compared it with SST. Knee extensors… CONTINUE READING
