We hypothesized that maximal unilateral isometric knee extensor torque, the rate of torque development during maximally fast isometric contractions and unilateral squat jump performance would be better with the dominant than non-dominant leg. Limb dominancy was established using the step up, balance recovery, and ball kick test. On two days, eight men (21.5 ± 2.2 years, means ± SD) performed unilateral maximal isometric contractions with their knee extensors (120° knee angle) with superimposed… CONTINUE READING
