Unformatted text preview: full B. Strensth Testing Techniques 1. One Repetition Maximum - maximum amount of weight lifted once. Use free weights or machines that allow dynamic muscle contractions - Universal Gym, etc. Nautilus Machines - accommodating resistance devices - leverage characteristics change as the joint goes through arange of motion so that the muscle is stressed more at more optimal joint angles. 2. Dynamometer Techniques - a strength testing dynamometer usually consists of a spring of some type which is deformed a certain amount when a specific force is applied to it (e.g., - hand grip dynamometer)'- measures isometric strength- relatively inexpensive, high reiiability if body position is carefully standardized for each trial of the test when...
