Why should I use isometric strength testing?

Definition: Isometric strength is defined as the maximum force that a muscle group can exert without movement.

  • Tests of isometric strength are easy to perform as they require only a single, maximal contraction.
  • By creating the proper test environment, many different types of strength can be evaluated.
  • Isometric strength testing is inexpensive and flexible.
  • Isometric strength tests are often favored because of the ease of use and the quick manner in which the maximal capacity of a muscle group can be determined.
