Strength Profiles: Arthur, Updates, & Testing Lab

This two-day class will examine the history of "strength curves" as defined by Arthur Jones. His 1986-93 findings, interpretations, and perceived flaws in strength testing procedures, will be compared to tradition "peak torque" testing traditionally performed on single-joint isokinetic devices.

Traditional isokinetic devices will be compared to the new isokinetic devices created by Tom Purvis in 2023 and 2024.

We will explore our recent findings as determined by both strength profiles testing and comparative responses to various resistance profiles.

Finally, each participant will have the opportunity to participate in strength profile testing with our recently acquired state-of-the-art sensor on Tom's isokinetic testing equipment. Then they will explore newly modified and refined resistance profiles on various machines and compare personal experience vs testing data.
