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.
When the loading frequencies are 0.2 Hz, 0.5 Hz, and 1 Hz, the peak damping forces of the MR damper are 10.54 kN, 10.92 kN, and 11.53 kN, respectively, and the hysteresis loop of the force-velocity curve is greatly affected.
As seen from Figures 5, 6, and 7, although the damping force-velocity curve of the model calculation cannot describe the hysteresis loop, the trends of the damping force-velocity curve and damping force-displacement curve of the model calculation and the experimental results are approximately the same.
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.
