Comparison of the Knee Extension Torque in the Maximum Voluntary Isometric Contraction and in the One Repetition Maximum Tests at Equivalent Angles

SUMMARY Objective. The purpose of this study was to compare the knee extension torque in the maximum voluntary isometric contraction (MVIC) and in the one repetition maximum (1RM) tests considering equivalent angles. Methods. Twenty-seven untrained women performed the MVIC and 1RM tests on the knee extension machine on two different days in a crossover design. … Continued
