Previous research has investigated the force-time curve characteristics of isometric muscle actions, however, few have addressed their relationship to the kinematics of dynamic movements. The purpose of this study was to investigate relationships between dynamic kinematics [high pull peak velocity, high pull rate of velocity development, vertical jump peak velocity (VJPV), vertical jump rate of velocity development (VJRVD)] and isometric force-time curve characteristics [peak force (IsoPF), peak force relative to body mass (IsoPF/BM), rate of force development at various time frames (RFD50ms, RFD100ms, RFD150ms, RFD200ms, RFD250ms, RFDMax)]. Forty-eight men and women (age 22.83 ± 1.75 y; height 173.43 ± 9.08 cm; mass 72.24 ± 17.63 kg) completed two testing sessions. The first session began with a five minute warm-up on a cycle ergometer at 50 rpm (25 watts). Following the warm-up, subjects performed three maximum isometric mid-thigh pulls with each repetition held for three seconds. All repetitions of the isometric and dynamic mid-thigh pulls were performed inside a power rack on a force plate that sampled at 1000Hz. On the second testing session, subjects completed the same five minute warm-up followed by three dynamic mid-thigh high pulls with a 30% IsoPF load. Two position transducers attached adjacent to the bar collars determined high pull peak velocity and rate of velocity development. Following the dynamic high pulls, subjects performed three countermovement vertical jumps with arm swing on the force plate. Investigators determined VJPV by subtracting body weight from the forcetime curve, dividing by body mass, and integrating with respect to time using the trapezoidal rule for numerical integration. VJRVD resulted by calculating the slope of the velocity-time record. VJPV significantly (p < 0.05) correlated with IsoPF (r = 0.531), RFD150 (r = 0.507), RFD200 (r = 0.467), RFD250 (r = 0.475), and IsoPF/BM (r = 0.397). VJRVD significantly (p < 0.05) correlated with IsoPF (r = 0.456), RFD150 (r = 0.590), RFD200 (r = 0.474), RFD250 (r = 0.528), RFDmax (r = 0.359) and IsoPF/BM (r = 0.399). No other variables significantly correlated. These correlations suggest that explosive isometric force production within windows of 150-250ms appear to be associated with the ability to accelerate one's body mass and attain high velocity during dynamic movements. The weak correlations between vertical jump kinematics (VJPV, VJRVD) and IsoPF/BM indicate absolute isometric strength might exhibit greater transfer to dynamic performance than relative isometric strength. Individuals needing to accelerate their own body mass and achieve high velocities (such as in jumping and sprinting) may want to consider training modalities targeting both maximum and explosive strength within the context of a comprehensive strength and conditioning program.
