Electromyographic EMG recordings were made during the assessment of arm strength and endurance of an isokinetic exercise in 25 high school women participating in a study designed to evaluate the response of young women to a male military training program. Force and EMG records were obtained during maximum voluntary contractions at isokinetic speeds of 5 and 15 RPM and during a 30 sec isokinetic endurance trial at 15 RPM. The results indicated that, regardless of the type of training, army strength and endurance improved. Author
