To estimate test-retest reliability for maximal voluntary isometric strength tests in shoulder IR and ER using FED, two identical test sessions were performed two weeks apart by the same trained tester.
We recall here classical isometric immersions of [R.sup.2] into [R.sup.4], and introduce an equivalence relation.
Maximal EMG ([EMG.sub.max]) of all isometric tasks were analyzed using root mean square with an averaging window of 250 ms over an epoch of 500 ms (250 ms on either side) of the time when either maximum isometric force or torque occurred, as recommended by both SENIAM guidelines and previous research (Buckthorpe et al., 2012; Hannah et al., 2012).
Although many studies have demonstrated such increases (21), particularly in maximal isometric strength, to date there is still no unanimity on the issue (11, 12).

* ILED, which was performed by means of a isometric lumbar extension measurement system developed by Laboratory of Instruments (LABIN), UDESC (16) .
In the isometric group, the peak torques of knee extension at both velocities increased significantly (p=0.025 for 60[degrees]/sec; p=0.041 for 180[degrees]/sec).
For the first leg of the stool, Bibber states, "It's all about the tool--truly the enabling component for anything we do with micromolding." Isometric already had significant experience in building micro tools, which are paramount to its success in micromolding.
Therefore, the purpose of this investigation was to determine whether musculo-articular stiffness and isometric plantar flexion and knee extension peak force and RFD differ between dancers and untrained individuals.
Consequently, the exact effect of cycle time during isometric exertions on muscle fatigue development is still inconclusive.
Results: Isometric twitch tensions of slow (soleus) and fast (EDL) muscles were similar in diabetic and control rats.
However, there have not been any studies of the effects on resting blood pressure of combined simultaneous training involving aerobic exercise (e.g., walking) whilst performing isometric exercise (e.g., handgrip).
