Effect of different velocity loss thresholds during a power-oriented resistance training program on the mechanical capacities of lower-body muscles
This study compared the effects of two velocity loss thresholds during a power-oriented resistance training program on the mechanical capacities of lower-body muscles. Twenty men were counterbalanced in two groups (VL10 ...
Selective changes in the mechanical capacities of lower-body muscles after cycle-ergometer sprint training against heavy and light resistances
(Human Kinetics, 2018-03)
Purpose: To explore the feasibility of the linear force–velocity (F–V) modeling approach to detect selective changes of F–V parameters (ie, maximum force [F0], maximum velocity [V0], F–V slope [a], and maximum power [P0]) ...
Optimal resistive forces for maximizing the reliability of leg muscles’ capacities tested on a cycle ergometer
(Human Kinetics, 2018-02)
This study determined the optimal resistive forces for testing muscle capacities through the standard cycle ergometer test (1 resistive force applied) and a recently developed 2-point method (2 resistive forces used for ...
Two-point method: a quick and fatigue-free procedure for assessment of muscle mechanical capacities and the 1 repetition maximum
(National Strength and Conditioning Association, 2018-04)
The force-velocity relationship is used to evaluate the maximal capacities of active muscles to produce force, velocity, and power. the load-velocity relationship has also been used to predict the 1 repetition maximum (1RM) ...
Assessment of the two-point method applied in field conditions for routine testing of muscle mechanical capacities in a leg cycle ergometer
Purpose The aim of this study was to compare the reliability and magnitude of the force–velocity (F–V) relationship parameters [maximum force (F0), maximum velocity (V0), F–V slope, and maximum power (P0)] obtained through ...
