An athlete's power capacity includes "maximum strength, high load speed strength, low load speed strength, rate of force development, reactive strength, skill performance, and power endurance.
Rate of Force Development (RFD) Contractile RFD was determined from the MVC trial.
Force, rate of force development and rates of relaxation were calculated at the beginning and end of the 3 minute protocol and examined for reliability and in relation to lactate threshold, V[O.
John's, New Foundland, the high rate of force development achieved with ballistic contractions should serve as a template for power training.
Abstract Previous research has demonstrated the importance of both dynamic and isometric maximal strength and rate of force development (RFD) in athletic populations.
Both groups produced similar improvements in maximum force output, but the heavy-load group improved more in the rate of force development (RFD) and in maximum rate of rise in electrical activity.
The maximum rate of force development (RFD) was calculated as the greatest force increase over 5 msec on the ascending aspect of the curve.
