Abstract

Current monitoring practices typically provide retrospective quantification of a resistance training session. That is, the information collected summarizes a completed session and is therefore used to modify a subsequent session. When the focus of a conditioning program progresses to the development of power, having dynamometry that allows athletes to gain instantaneous feedback as to power output or velocity of motion may result in more goal-oriented movement that increases the likelihood of transference to on-field performance or at the very least improves the mechanical variable of interest.
