The Inter-Session Reliability of Isometric Force-Time Variables and the Effects of Filtering and Starting Force

Introduction Explosive strength has been defined as the ability to produce large force or torque values in a limited period of time with high rates of force development (RFD) ( Schmidtbleicher, 1992 ). The requirement of producing force rapidly is important given that many sporting performances are limited by the time available to the athlete to develop force ( Dapena and Chung, 1988 ; Kuitunen et al., 2002 ; Luhtanen and Komi, 1979 ; Viitasalo et al., 1981 ; Maszczyk et al., 2016 ). Indeed, the RFD has been one of the most important variables in

Force and Electromyographic Responses of the Biceps Brachii after Eccentric Exercise in Athletes and non-Athletes

Introduction Eccentric (ECC) exercise is a specific type of muscle work. Fast twitch motor units are the main units recruited during ECC exercise ( Nardone and Schieppati, 1988 ), therefore, maximal force generated during eccentric contractions is about 30-40% higher than during concentric contractions ( Komi and Rusko, 1974 ). The main effects of ECC exercise are prolonged strength loss, muscle fibers damage, delayed onset muscle soreness, and muscle shortening resulting in a decreased joint angle ( Clarkson et al., 1992 ). It is well known that
