, isokinetic strength testing with the Biodex system. 17 They measured concentric and eccentric strength with 60°/s. However, this study was excluded because single-leg strength was assessed, but not double-legged 1RM measurements as in the other studies. In this systematic review and meta-analysis, no

CMJ and speed performance could have been partly induced by prior isokinetic maximal strength testing. It appears that a longer resting interval may help to maintain a higher speed during the last 4 repetitions, a higher mean speed during SEPT, promoted fatigue dissipation (MVC) during the first 3

general health in older adults ( Savino et al., 2013 ). The handgrip strength test is an inexpensive and time-efficient measurement procedure that can be easily performed. Sayer et al. ( 2006 ) found that people with low handgrip strength have decreased health-related quality of life. Handgrip strength is
