Quadriceps and hamstrings strength is usually quantified by the peak torque during maximal voluntary isokinetic contractions. Ratios of peak torque are used to assess limb asymmetry and compare hamstrings strength relative to quadriceps strength. Peak torque is affected by the mode and speed of testing, and it is important to consider whether or not to normalize peak torque (e.g., to body mass). Positive, but moderate correlations were observed between knee strength and triple hop distance and… CONTINUE READING
