Reliability of Force-Velocity Tests in Cycling and Cranking Exercises in Men and Women

Abstract

The present study examined the reliability of the force-velocity relationship during cycling and arm cranking exercises in active males and females. Twenty male and seventeen female physical education students performed three-session tests with legs and three-session tests with arms on a friction-loaded ergometer on six different sessions in a randomized order. The reliability of maximal power , maximal pedal rate , and maximal force were studied using the coefficient of variation (CV), the intraclass correlation coefficient (ICC) and the test-retest correlation coefficient . Reliability indices were better for men (1.74 ≤q CV ≤q 4.36, 0.82 ≤q ICC ≤q 0.97, and 0.81 ≤q ≤q 0.97) compared with women (2.34 ≤q CV ≤q 7.04, 0.44 ≤q ICC ≤q 0.98, and 0.44 ≤q ≤q 0.98) and in cycling exercise (1.74 ≤q CV ≤q 3.85, 0.88 ≤q ICC ≤q 0.98, and 0.90 ≤q ≤q 0.98) compared with arm exercise (2.37 ≤q CV ≤q 7.04, 0.44 ≤q ICC ≤q 0.95, and 0.44 ≤q ≤q 0.95). Furthermore, the reliability indices were high for and whatever the expression of the results (raw data or data related to body dimensions). and could be used in longitudinal physical fitness investigations. However, further studies are needed to judge reliability.
