Abstract

The purpose of this study was to replicate the testing protocol used by Parcell, Sawyer, Valmor, Tricoli and Chinevere (2002) with a female population to determine whether females had the same recovery responses as males when performing isokinetic tests. Eleven female subjects were recruited and tested on 4 separate occasions. A 4 X 5 repeated measures ANOVA was used to analyze the data (p < .05). There were no significant findings. The conclusions were that the females in the study did not understand maximal force production, peak torque averages don't provide the same information as the highest peak torque per set, or the females need more time to become attenuated to the testing apparatus.
