After two sub-maximal attempts, isometric muscle strength tests were applied with three repetitions at 30[degrees] shoulder abduction, and isokinetic concentric strength tests were applied with three repetitions at 60[degrees]/s angular speed and 16 repetitions at 120[degrees]/s angular speed.
Handgrip strength also varied between obese and normal children and this resulted in significant decrease in pulmonary functions in obese children when compared to normal children when subjected to isometric exercise using handgrip dynamometer.
Allometric partitioning theory showed that MB scales in a nearly isometric manner with respect to MA across and within clades and different habitats (Enquist and Niklas, 2002; Niklas, 2005), and empirical statistical trends agree with this prediction (Niklas and Enquist, 2002; Enquist and Niklas, 2002; Niklas, 2004, 2005, 2006; Cheng and Niklas, 2007, Cheng et al.

Washington, April 23 ( ANI ): Alternative therapies such as aerobic exercise, resistance or strength training, and isometric hand grip exercises reduce blood pressure and can be considered an adjunctive treatment for those who can't tolerate or don't respond well to standard medications, according to the American Heart Association.

Combined RVC of jaw clenching, hand gripping, and the Valsalva maneuver have been shown to augment isometric knee extensor average and peak torque (PT) (6), isokinetic knee extension PT, rate of torque development (RTD), power, and work (3) when compared to control test conditions with no RVC.
Changes in parameters such as Isometric Strength, Force-velocity, Active Force-Length, Passive Force-Length, Activation Dynamics, and Tendon Stiffness were taken into account to represent muscle atrophy and remodeling that adversely affect muscle mechanics over the passage of time.
