The isometric mid-thigh pull: a review and methodology – Part 1
Isometric tests are commonly used to monitor physical qualities that underpin athletic performance. As single-joint laboratory-based tests display poor relationships to the multi-joint movements found in sport, multi-joint isometric tests like the isometric mid-thigh pull (IMTP) are commonly used instead. Force-time characteristics in these multi-joint tests typically display stronger relationships to dynamic performance, particularly in the case of the isometric mid-thigh pull. As such, this review focuses on the relationships between force-time characteristics in the IMTP and dynamic athletic performance.
