PURPOSE To examine whether normalized quadriceps and hamstring strength would predict quadriceps and hamstring muscle activation amplitudes and whether these neuromuscular factors would predict knee kinematics and kinetics during a drop jump task. METHODS Thirty-nine females and 39 males were measured for isometric quadriceps and hamstring strength and were instrumented to obtain surface electromyography, kinematic, and kinetic measures during the initial landing of a drop jump.
