chain exercises, and movement variations for the novice to the advanced. 1 – 3 Push-up and bench press variations are a collective theme in this dialog as they are commonly utilized for fitness assessment as well as developing upper-body strength, power, and endurance. Hand position is a simple, as

; Young, 2006 ). The process of gaining strength can be affected by neural adaptations comprising coordination of muscular activity across multiple synergistic and antagonistic muscles ( Sale, 1988 ). Particularly, in forceful exercises such as bench press, the expression of strength is deeply dependent

Bench-press exercise is often used as a simple test to evaluate the upper-limb force, velocity, and power output. 1 – 3 These muscle parameters are usually determined using a force platform 4 , 5 or kinematic systems such as optical encoders 6 , 7 or linear transducers. 1 , 8 – 10 Although

concentric-only bench press exercise performed in a Smith machine (Technogym, Barcelona, Spain). It was hypothesized that (1) the linear position and velocity transducers would provide a more accurate prediction of the 1RM than wearable wireless devices 7 and (2) the accuracy in the estimation of the 1RM

Although in conventional team sports, upper-limb strength capacity has been widely determined by means of the bench press (BP), 11 , 12 in Para-sports, few studies have analyzed this exercise to determine muscle strength. 7 – 9 , 13 However, one of the main problems faced by strength and conditioning
