) consent were obtained, and baseline measures were collected. At the second visit, the participants went through a battery of 10-repetition maximum (10-RM) muscular strength tests; 10-RM was defined as the maximum amount of weight the individual could successfully lift for 10 repetitions ( Haff, Triplett

. From the starting position, participants were told to lower themselves to 90° of elbow flexion while maintaining 30° of shoulder abduction (matching the strength testing protocol). If participants descended past 90° of elbow flexion, the safety harness would stop the forward movement of their body to

, Medway, MA) and a hex bar with polyurethane-coated Olympic plates (Perform Better, West Warwick, RI) were used for strength testing. The 3-RM was determined by measuring the maximum mass that could be lifted for three repetitions on six different exercises: 45° leg press, hex bar deadlift, chest press

reliability of the isometric plank hold test among children aged 8–12 years has been found elsewhere ( 6 ); however, this study only reported ICC values, the limitations of which have previously been outlined. Test–retest reliability for the handgrip strength test and standing broad jump was very high in the

Maximum Strength Test Both 1RM tests (test and retest) were performed within a 48-hour interval using a unilateral knee-extension exercise (dominant leg) (TechnoGym®, Rome, Italy) and were determined according to methods accomplished by Seo et al. 17 A warm-up was performed with a set
