REST PERIOD FOR PEAK TORQUE RECOVERY DURING ISOKINETIC TESTING
Keywords: isokinetic, peak torque
AbstractThe purpose of this study was to investigate the responses of females during isokinetic testing when counterbalancing the rest periods between sets. Twelve 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 differences between rest periods or velocities as measured in peak torque values. Although peak torque values did not differ significantly it was evident that longer rest periods provided more similar peak torque values across velocities.
