COMPARISON OF PEAK TORQUE VALUES WHEN USING REST PERIODS COUNTERBALANCED WITHIN AND BETWEEN VELOCITY SETS
Keywords: isokinetic, peak torque, familiarization, counterbalanced
AbstractThe purpose of this study was to investigate the peak torque of two groups of females performing isokinetic tests in which one group of eleven females had rest periods counterbalanced within the velocity set while a group of twelve females had rest periods counterbalanced between velocity sets. The subjects were tested on 4 separate occasions with gravity correction incorporated in all tests. A 2 x 4 x 5 repeated measures ANOVA was used to analyze the data (p < .05). There were no significant differences between rest periods, velocities, or significant interactions. Although, there were significant differences between the groups, those differences seem to be consistent and not affected by rest periods.
