Two studies were conducted in 83 college men to determine the degree of generality of individual differences in upper body muscular strength assessed by different testing modes. In study 1 (N=43), correlations were computed between four measures of upper body strength using the bench press movement, maximal isokinetic (0.09 rad·s−1), maximal fast (0.126 m·s−1) and slow (0.037 m·s−1) hydraulic, and one repetition maximum (1-RM) free weight bench press (BP). Compared to free weight BP, maximal… CONTINUE READING
