ForceDecks App Protocol
|Starting Position||Starting position varies depending on the isometric test being performed.|
1. Zero plates - Zero the plates. Ensure nothing is touching the plates during this step.
Important: for isometric tests where the bodyweight is being supported by something other than the plates (e.g., Shoulder Iso-I), only the limb being tested should be weighed.
3. Assume starting position - Ask the individual to assume the starting position on the plates.
a. Contract as hard and as fast as possible; then
b. Hold at maximum force output for a minimum of 2 seconds; then
c. Relax after the contraction; then
d. Assume the starting position again.
6. Repeat - Repeat step 5 to record the desired number of reps.
