Assessment of isometric muscle strength was performed in supine position with the dominant upper limb posture as follows: arm in the frontal plane at 90Adeg of abduction, elbow flexed at 90o in the sagittal plane, and forearm in pronation.
The mapping [alpha], [alpha](x,y) = (c(x),y), is an isometric immersion of [R.sup.2] into [R.sup.4], where c(x) is a curve in [R.sup.3] [congruent to] [R.sup.3] x{0}, x being the arc length parameter.
When analyzed by martial arts, the results of each showed a certain degree of increase in isometric strength, albeit reaching statistical significance only for taekwondo.
Blood pressure response to isometric exercise in patients with peripheral atherosclerotic disease.
The hamstring/quadriceps ratio remained nearly unchanged in the isokinetic group and decreased in the aerobic and isometric groups (p=0.172 and p=0.017, respectively); however, only this ratio was significant in the isometric group.
(25) Subjects then performed three maximal isometric plantar flexion (MIP) contractions and three maximal isometric knee extension (MIKE) contractions.
However, given the different muscle loading patterns possible during intermittent muscle exertions, it is important to achieve the same overall mean muscle load when comparing the findings from studies investigating prolonged isometric muscle exertions with intermittent isometric exertions (Dickerson et al., 2015).
Muscles were stimulated using single (1Hz) twitch stimulations with 1 minute rest periods to record isometric twitches, time to peak twitch tension (TPTT) and time taken to relax to 50% of its peak twitch tension or half relaxation time (HRT)7.
Following measurement of resting BP each participant's isometric handgrip maximum voluntary contraction (MVC) was determined for both the left and right hand, using a handgrip dynamometer (Zona Plus Hand Grip device, Zona Health B.
