the same technician, whose calculated FFM test–retest reliability was intraclass correlation = .99; SEM  = 0.37 kg; minimal difference = 1.03 kg. Maximal strength testing took place approximately 24 hr after the body composition assessment. After completing a body mass warm-up, participants followed

Consequently, our results suggested that, for healthy young women, upper leg 50% girth measurement rather than handgrip strength test was a useful method for evaluating both knee extensor muscle strength and size. In the present study, a stepwise multiple regression analysis was applied to the predictor

. Additionally, participants were also tested for a 2RM to 8RM on all other programmed lifts. 1RM was estimated from these results using the following formula 16 : 1 RM = Load / ( 1.0278 − 0.0278 × repetitions performed ) Testing for 1RM was repeated during the week between conditions. All strength testing was

) was comprised of 33.3% females with a mean age of 73.8 (5.4) years. Baseline Characteristics No significant between-group differences were noted for the demographic variables or outcome measures at baseline (Table  1 ) except the ankle dorsiflexion strength test. The B&S group exhibited greater

3 dynamometer (Biodex Medical Inc.) was used for all strength testing. Isokinetic dynamometers frequently are used to assess neuromuscular function because they provide detailed torque, velocity, and position data with high mechanical reliability ( Drouin, Valovich-mcleod, Shultz, Gansneder

Each strength test was performed as a “make test” against the resistance of the “Kern HCB 200K100” dynamometer (Kern e Sohn GmbH, Ziegelei
