rating of perceived exertion. Maximal strength testing Maximal strength was determined for four exercises in the following testing sequence: (a) bench press, (b) leg press, (c) lat pull-down, and (d) leg curl. Immediately prior to RM testing, blood pressure was deemed appropriate to proceed for exercise

Isokinetic Quadriceps Strength and Knee Pain The maximum isokinetic quadriceps strength was assessed using the MYORET, RZ-450 (Kawasaki Heavy Industries, Ltd, Kobe, Japan). Before the muscle strength test, the
