Factors Related to Average Concentric Velocity of Four Barbell Exercises at Various Loads

In this paper, the authors wanted to see whether individual factors such as training experience or anthropometrics influence the average concentric velocity (ACV) during a repetition. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to determine whether training age, current training frequency, limb length, height, and relative strength are related to ACV at loads between 35 […]

An Investigation Into the Effects of Excluding the Catch Phase of the Power Clean on Force-Time Characteristics During Isometric and Dynamic Tasks: An Intervention Study

An interesting paper, The aims of this study were to compare the effects of the exclusion or inclusion of the catch phase during power clean (PC) derivatives on force-time characteristics during isometric and dynamic tasks, after two 4-week mesocycles of resistance training. Two strength matched groups completed the twice-weekly training sessions either including the catch […]
