The first aim was to examine the association of absolute and relative lower body muscle force characteristics (maximum muscle force and different rate of force development indicators), on kinematic component which determine the start performance in elite male swimmers.
Seventy-seven female office workers (25-46yrs) with and without neck/ shoulder pain were observed with respect to self-reported pain (NRS101), pressure-pain threshold (PPT), maximum voluntary contraction (Fmax) and rate of force development (RFD) at baseline (pre-intervention), immediately post-intervention and 48 hours post-intervention.

John's, New Foundland, the high rate of force development achieved with ballistic contractions should serve as a template for power training.
From the raw force data, stroke rate, stroke ratio, impulse, peak force, time to peak force, and rate of force development were calculated for each stroke during the last minute of rowing.
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.
