Isokinetics in Human Performance incorporates state-of-the-art performance research with the professional experience and insights of 34 experts in the field. This first-of-a-kind text offers performance researchers and strength and conditioning professionals a comprehensive treatment of isokinetic technology and its practical applications. Edited by renowned teacher, researcher, and NSCA board member Lee E. Brown, MEd, CSCS, the reference includes -An overview of isokinetic dynamometry and its evolution during the past 30 years -An examination of velocity specific to human performance-Up-to-date studies concerning isokinetic research and its relevance to individual sports and specific performance types including space flight-Enhanced data presentation and interpretation using 115 illustrations and 58 data tablesPart I defines isokinetic dynamometry technology and its data interpretation and screening techniques; compares and contrasts the technology with traditional isotonic/isometric training methods; and correlates isokinetic testing results to the dynamics of individual performance.Part II provides a biomechanical perspective on isokinetic dynamometry, including its limitations; assesses standardized testing procedures and data interpretation; and describes three-dimensional mapping techniques for interpreting athletic performance data.Part III explores testing and training applications for specific upper- and lower-body joints, muscle groups, body movements, muscle control and velocity; defines functional lifting limits and protocols for testing and training spinal muscles; and indicates applications of isokinetic devices to cardiorespiratory fitness.Part IV applies tests and measurements to specific population groups (youth, gender, and issues of aging), specific sports performance (tennis, baseball, soccer, and American and Australian football), and simulated space flight.Isokinetics in Human Performance offers performance researchers and other strength and conditioning professionals an up-to-date overview of human isokinetic research and its practical applications.
