PURPOSE To investigate the relationship between maximum strength and differences in jump height during weighted and unweighted (body weight) static (SJ) and countermovement jumps (CMJ). METHODS Sixty-three collegiate athletes (mean +/- SD; age= 19.9 +/- 1.3 y; body mass = 72.9 +/- 19.6 kg; height = 172.8 +/- 7.7 cm) performed two trials of the SJ and CMJ with 0 kg and 20 kg on a force plate; and two trials of mid-thigh isometric clean pulls in a custom rack over a force plate (1000-Hz…

An Investigation Into the Relationship Between Maximum Isometric Strength and Vertical Jump Performance

Because stronger athletes did not jump higher than weaker athletes, dynamic strength tests may be more practical methods of assessing the relationships between relative strength levels and dynamic performance in collegiate athletes.

Relationships between Isometric Force-Time Characteristics and Dynamic Performance

The findings highlight that the ability to apply rapidly high levels of force in short time intervals is integral for PC, CMJ height, and reactive strength.

Relationships between lower body muscle structure and isometric mid-thigh pull peak force

The VL muscle thickness of male collegiate athletes’ dominant leg is largely correlated to their bilateral absolute IMTP peak force capacity (demonstrating 38% shared variance), and Practitioners should develop hypertrophy ofmale collegiate athletes' VL musculature through appropriately designed strength training programs.

The Relationship between Speed and Strength in the Beach Volleyball Serve

Abstract The objective of this study was to analyze the relationship between isometric force produced in different joints and its effects on the power kick serve speed in beach volleyball as a

Associations of Body Composition, Maximum Strength, Power Characteristics with Sprinting, Jumping, and Intermittent Endurance Performance in Male Intercollegiate Soccer Players

The findings agree with previous literature in that body composition and power characteristics are directly related to soccer-related performance.

Kinetic parameters as determinants of vertical jump performance

1 Abstract - This study evaluated force and velocity parameters of vertical jump perfor - mance in countermovement jump (CMJ) and squat jump (SJ) and compared results for sprint runners and

Static jump test performance is related to back squat strength in athletes

We examined a static jump test's relationship with back squat strength in collegiate athletes. Forty-one (n = 41) young (aged 20.8 ± 2.4 years), healthy volunteers reported estimated back squat

Identifying Reliable and Relatable Force–Time Metrics in Athletes—Considerations for the Isometric Mid-Thigh Pull and Countermovement Jump

Evaluated intrasession reliability of countermovement jump (CMJ) and isometric mid-thigh pull (IMTP) force–time characteristics, as well as relationships between CMJ and IMTP metrics, met acceptable reliability standards, except RFD measures which should be used with caution.

The Relationship Between Isometric Strength and Sprint Acceleration in Sprinters.

Variables measured during the IMTP and ISqT significantly correlated with 0- 5 m sprint performance in male athletes, suggesting that isometric strength can have a sizable influence on 0 - 5 m time, but in some cases the maximum effect could be very small.

Normalization of Early Isometric Force Production as a Percentage of Peak Force During Multijoint Isometric Assessment.

PURPOSE To determine the reliability of early force production (50, 100, 150, 200, and 250 ms) relative to peak force (PF) during an isometric mid-thigh pull and to assess the relationships between

PEAK FORCE AND RATE OF FORCE DEVELOPMENT DURING ISOMETRIC AND DYNAMIC MID‐THIGH CLEAN PULLS PERFORMED AT VARIOUS INTENSITIES

It appears that the isometric and dynamic measures of force-time curve characteristics represent relatively specific qualities, especially when dynamic testing involves small external loads, and athletes who possess greater isometric maximum strength and dynamic explosive strength tend to be able to jump higher.

The relationship between maximal jump-squat power and sprint acceleration in athletes

Concentric force development is critical to sprint start performance and accordingly maximal concentric jump power is related to sprint acceleration.

FORCE‐‐TIME CURVE CHARACTERISTICS OF DYNAMIC AND ISOMETRIC MUSCLE ACTIONS OF ELITE WOMEN OLYMPIC WEIGHTLIFTERS

The results of this study suggest that the able to perform maximal snatch and clean and jerks shows some structural and functional foundation with the ability to generate high forces rapidly in elite women weightlifters.

THE CONTRIBUTION OF MAXIMAL FORCE PRODUCTION TO EXPLOSIVE MOVEMENT AMONG YOUNG COLLEGIATE ATHLETES

Current correlation data provide a quantified look at the interaction between muscular fitness components, as well as the transfer relationship to several athletic-specific performance measures.

Power and Maximum Strength Relationships During Performance of Dynamic and Static Weighted Jumps

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.

Leg strength and stiffness as ability factors in 100 m sprint running.

The concentric half-squats test was the best predictor in the 100 m sprint, and leg stiffness plays a major role in the second phase.

THE IMPORTANCE OF ISOMETRIC MAXIMUM STRENGTH AND PEAK RATE‐OF‐FORCE DEVELOPMENT IN SPRINT CYCLING

The results suggest that larger, stronger sprint cyclists have an advantage in producing power and are generally faster sprint cyclists.

Maximum Strength‐Power‐Performance Relationships in Collegiate Throwers

Results suggest that maximum strength is strongly associated with PP even at relatively light loads such as those associated with sport-specific dynamic explosiveness (i.e., SN, SP, WGT), and peak force, peak rate of force development, and PP increased over the 8 weeks.

Strong correlation of maximal squat strength with sprint performance and vertical jump height in elite soccer players

There was a strong correlation between maximal strength in half squats and sprint performance and jumping height in high level soccer players, and high squat strength did not imply reduced maximal oxygen consumption.

RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN HOCKEY SKATING SPEED AND SELECTED PERFORMANCE MEASURES

The significant correlations with balance suggested that stability may be associated with skating speed in younger players and the low correlations with drop jumps suggested that short contact time stretch-shortening activities (i.e., low amplitude plyometrics) may not be an important factor.
