Isokinetics and Exercise Science (IES) is an international journal devoted to the study of theoretical and applied aspects of human muscle performance. Since isokinetic dynamometry constitutes the major tool in this area, the journal takes a particular interest in exploring the considerable potential of this technology.
Isokinetics and Exercise Science publishes studies associated with the methodology of muscle performance especially with respect to the issues of reproducibility and validity of testing, description of normal and pathological mechanical parameters which are derivable from muscle testing, applications in basic research topics such as motor learning paradigms and electromyography. The journal also publishes studies on applications in clinical settings and technical aspects of the various measurement systems employed in human muscle performance research.
Isokinetics and Exercise Science welcomes submissions in the form of research papers, reviews, case studies and technical reports from professionals in the fields of sports medicine, orthopaedic and neurological rehabilitation and exercise physiology.
Abstract: To examine the anthropometry-performance relationship from high-speed elbow flexor resistive exercise, subjects (n=73) made three laboratory visits spaced approximately one week apart. Per subject six anthropometric variables were collected: height, mass, body mass index, as well as total, upper and lower arm lengths. Workouts entailed two 60-second sets of elbow flexor (curling) repetitions; mean acceleration and mean torque were measures and averaged from each set. With each of those measurements as criterion variables, multivariate regression utilized…the six anthropometric indices to act as predictors of the performance-related variance. Per multivariate analysis, current results failed to demonstrate a significant (P > 0.05) anthropometric-performance relationship. While prior work noted strong relationships, the lack of current study statistical significance may be a function of multiple factors that could include heterogeneity of our sample and the inherent variability seen with high-speed resistive exercise.
