Best practice for strength testing has been retrieved from the specific scientific literature to help strength training coaches in determining the force-velocity curve in a reliable manner (Table 1).
Implications: A list of good practice rules is provided for helping strength training coaches in determining the force-velocity curve in a reliable manner.
These principles suggest that the eccentric actions are more specific, provide greater load via the force-velocity curve
and generally provide a more effective resistance training programme.
Graphically, this can be illustrated on a force-velocity curve
as the rapid and efficient transition from eccentric to concentric muscle action.
Indeed, the classic force-velocity curve
for isolated muscle seems to be applicable in throwing tasks with different loads, suggesting that some strength training programs can also be applied in these throwing tasks.
2015) quantified fatigue-induced alterations in CMJ mechanics by estimating effect sizes, coefficients of variation or areas under force-velocity curves
, whereas Gollhofer et al.
for both PSATs were very similar (Fig.
