For many sporting activities, initial speed rather than maximal speed would be considered of greater importance to successful performance. The purpose of this study was to identify the relationship between strength and power and measures of first-step quickness (5-m time), acceleration (10-m time), and maximal speed (30-m time). The maximal strength (3 repetition maximum [3RM]), power (30-kg jump squat, countermovement, and drop jumps), isokinetic strength measures (hamstring and quadriceps… Expand
Relationship Between Sprint Times and the Strength/Power Outputs of a Machine Squat Jump
TLDR
Although correlations do not imply cause and effect, the preoccupation with maximizing power output in this particular resistance exercise to improve sprint ability appears problematic. Expand
Which jump variables should be used to assess explosive leg muscle function?
TLDR
If an integrated system comprising a position transducer and a force platform is available for CMJ assessment, jump height and peak power/weight are useful variables to describe leg muscle explosive function for athletes who perform sprints. Expand
Should All Athletes Do Explosive Lifting?
STRENGTH AND POWER AND SPORTS PERFORMANCE While some muscular strength and power qualities discriminate higherand lesser-skilled athletes [1], others do not [2, 3]. Indeed, in a study of AmericanExpand
The Relation between Physical Tests, Measures, and Clubhead Speed in Elite Golfers
The purpose of this study was to investigate the relationship between selected physical tests and clubhead speed, and whether body mass should be considered when presenting the test results.Expand
Speed running is determined by strength and power in young football players
Introduction: For years researchers and trainers have been looking for determinants of sports talent in the youngest and also in the relationship between individual motor features relevant in givenExpand
Muscle Strength and Speed Performance in Youth Soccer Players
TLDR
Results show that leg muscle strength and anthropometric variables strongly correlate with sprinting ability, which suggests that anthropometric characteristics should be considered to compare among youth players, and that youth players should undergo strength training to improve running speed.

Relationship between the sprint and vertical jumps' power in young soccer players
Muscle power, speed and acceleration are generally considered important determinants of high performance in sports. Thus, the aim of this study was to evaluate the relationships between 10- andExpand
Effect of variable resistance training on lower limb strength and power development: A training study
The ability to develop high levels of muscular strength and power is considered to be a critical component in many, if not most, sports. Because of this, new training methods are constantly beingExpand
Relationship between strength, speed and change direction performance in field hockey players
TLDR
The greater understanding of field hockey specific demands imposed upon sport performers by match play and training and the more likely it is that suitable training and recovery programmes will be improved and employed, which may lead to promote the player performance and reducing the risk of injuries.

Relationship between strength qualities and sprinting performance.
TLDR
It was concluded that strength qualities were related to sprinting performance and these relationships differed for starting and maximum speed sprinting. Expand
Physiological Determinants of 40‐Meter Sprint Performance in Young Male Athletes
This study examined 20 male athletes on a number of physiological variables to determine which may account for the most variation in 40-m sprint performance. The athletes were tested on 40-m sprint,Expand
Modelling the relationship between isokinetic muscle strength and sprint running performance.
TLDR
It is suggested that the relationship between isokinetic muscle strength and sprint performance over 0-15 m (during the acceleration phase) is improved by taking limb length and body mass into account. Expand
Is muscle power related to running speed with changes of direction?
TLDR
It was concluded that reactive strength of the leg extensor muscles has some importance in change-of-direction performance but the other technical and perceptual factors than influence agility performance should also be considered. Expand
The relationship between muscle strength and sprint kinematics in elite sprinters.
Twenty-three elite sprinters, 9 females and 14 males, were filmed while performing a maximal sprint. Age, height, weight, and personal best 100 m time were also determined for each sprinter. SeveralExpand

TLDR
Twenty-three elite sprinters, 9 females and 14 males, were filmed while performing a maximal sprint and several kinematic variables were calculated for each athlete, including stride length, stride frequency, horizontal and vertical velocity of the CG, and the angular kinematics of the limbs.

TLDR
It was concluded that isokinetic eccentric quadriceps and hamstring forces were no better predictors of athletic performance than muscle forces assessed in other ways, however, they may be more predictive of some specific components of performance. Expand
