Though precise comparisons between our data with that from other investigations are difficult due to differences in velocities and muscles tested, our data are consistent with previous research indicating lower muscle amplitude at lower isokinetic velocities compared to higher isokinetic velocities (Aagaard et al, 2000; Babault et al, 2002).
Before and after the training program, each subject was evaluated using the following tests; anthropometrical measurements, fixed weight repetition, step-up, decline squat, single leg hop, and isokinetic assessments (peak torque, work per repetition, initial peak torque, fatigue index, total work done, %BW).
