RELATIONS BETWEEN SOME TYPES OF FOREARM STRENGTH IN KINESIOLOGY STUDENTS

Goran Kuvacic, Josip Vrdoljak, Marijana Drazic

The aim of this paper was to determine the correlations between maximum, static and repetitive strength, separately of the right and the left forearm in kinesiology students. Partial aim of the research was to determine some metric characteristics of the applied tests assessing particular aspects of strength. Based on the descriptive statistics results, it can be concluded that students’ right forearm is stronger than the left in all aspects of manifested strength. The tests assessing static and repetitive strength have good reliability and sensitivity, but did not have good homogeneity. Correlation analysis revealed correlations between maximum and static strength for both right and left forearm. There was no correlation between maximum and repetitive strength in either forearm. Correlation between repetitive and static strength was found on the right forearm, which was not the case on the left forearm. The lack of research studies dealing with similar research problems has greatly hindered the interpretation of the results. The tests should be applied on a larger sample of athletes, such as judo athletes, for whom the investigated aspects of strength are of great importance.
