BACKGROUND: Spike effectiveness represents a determining element in volleyball. To compete at a high level, the player must, in particular, produce a spike characterized by a high ball velocity. HYPOTHESIS: Some muscular and physical features could influence ball velocity during the volleyball spike. STUDY DESIGN: Descriptive laboratory study. METHODS: A total of 19 male volleyball players from the 2 highest Belgian national divisions underwent an isokinetic assessment of the dominant shoulder and elbow. Ball velocity performance (radar gun) during a spike test, morphological feature, and jump capacity (ergo jump) of the player were measured. We tested the relationship between the isokinetic parameters or physical features and field performances represented by spike velocity. We also compared first-division and second-division player data. RESULTS: Spike velocity correlated significantly with strength performance of the dominant shoulder (internal rotators) and of the dominant elbow (flexors and extensors) in the concentric mode. Negative correlations were established with the concentric external rotator on internal rotator ratio at 400 deg/s and with the mixed ratio (external rotator at 60 deg/s in the eccentric mode on internal rotator at 240 deg/s in the concentric mode). Positive correlations appeared with both the volleyball players' jump capacity and body mass index. First-division players differed from second-division players by higher ball velocity and increased jump capacity. CONCLUSION: Some specific strength and physical characteristics correlated significantly with spike performance in high-level volleyball practice. CLINICAL RELEVANCE: Our results could provide useful information for training management and propose some reflections on injury prevention. [less ▲]

The following procedures were performed on 23 patients (15 of them males): a shoulder strength isokinetic evaluation of the internal (IR) and external (ER) rotators (with the shoulder 45 degrees and 90 degrees abducted in the frontal plane), a passive range of motion measurement, a Rowe score and a scanner exam. These patients had previously undergone open coracoid transposition using Latarjet's technique according to two different surgical procedures: a tenotomy (n = 6) or a splitting (n = 17) of the subscapularis muscle approach. In our retrospective study, the period of time between surgery and assessment was an average of 30 months. The average Rowe score was 89 on a scale of 100, with a good pattern of passive mobility. The isokinetic data showed an external rotator weakness (in all testing conditions), most notably at 60 degrees/s in 45 degrees of abduction position (p < 0.001 - 12.2%). By contrast, the internal rotators were only significantly (p < 0.05) impaired (8.2%) at 60 degrees/s in the 90 degrees of abduction position. Consequently, the external/internal rotator ratio (ERAR) was reduced in the 45 degrees of abduction installation only, highlighting the influence of testing position on the isokinetic results and therefore on the shoulder muscle profile. Surgical technique comparison revealed that only the tenotomy procedure entailed an IR deficit (17%) measured at 45 degrees of abduction installation. Shoulders (n = 5) presenting a fatty degeneration of the subscapularis muscle >= stage II (corresponding exclusively to the tenotomy surgical approach) showed an internal rotator weakness (19%) measured in 45 degrees of abduction. Patients (n = 13) without subscapularis fatty degradation (corresponding solely to the horizontal splitting approach) did not develop any impairment of strength in internal rotators. Furthermore, no correlation between mobility pattern and strength impairment was observed in the study. [less ▲]

In volleyball, the spike's effectiveness is a determining element of the team's success. To perform at a high level, a player must be able to produce spikes characterized by a speed of the ball that increase the defence's uncertainly.

Relatively little is known about isokinetic profiles of the forearm and wrist muscles. The aims of the study were therefore to prove the reproducibility of the measurements, to establish reference concentric and eccentric strength values and to determine the effectiveness of an isokinetic eccentric training model in treating chronic epicondylitis. The concentric and eccentric assessment of healthy male and female subjects allowed the analysis of different parameters: absolute and bodyweight normalized peak torque; bilateral asymmetries and conventional pronator / supinator and flexor / extensor ratios. We have studied the coefficients of variation in a test – retest session. At the same time, 32 patients diagnosed with chronic lateral epicondylitis benefited from an adapted isokinetic eccentric training model (20 to 30 sessions). The absolute reliability in repeated tests procedure of peak torque measurement appeared satisfactory with CV inferior to 12 %. The bilateral asymmetries did not exceed 24 %. PT ratio study reflected the superiority of the PRO and FLE muscles in comparison to the opposite groups. The eccentric rehabilitative model presented a very satisfactory effect on treating chronic epicondylitis with a significant reduction of pain (Visual Analogic Scale), improvement in the ultrasonographic examination (normalized echoic aspect in 53 % of cases) and normalization of maximal isokinetic strength. The isokinetic testing of the forearm pronosupinator muscles and wrist flexor-extensor muscles appeared reproducible. Referential values were proposed for different parameters allowing easier interpretation of pathological cases. The isokinetic eccentric rehabilitative model promoted the epicondylitis treatment.

Objective. To establish the inter-session reproducibility of isokinetic concentric strength and fatigue profile of the elbow flexors and extensors in sedentary women. Methods. Forty healthy women who were physically inactive or engaged in recreational sports were included in the study. Strength was evaluated at 60 and 180 degrees/s. The fatigue protocol consisted of 30 maximal-intensity elbow flexion and extension at 180 degrees/s. Results. The extensors were stronger than flexors while no dominance effect was apparent. In addition the work output of the extensors during the fatigue protocol was larger than the flexors', the previous being more fatigue resistant. A dominance effect was observed for the extensors in the fatiguing protocol. Reproducibility expressed by the coefficient of variation was less or equal to 11%. Conclusions. This study highlights satisfactory reproducibility of isokinetic strength and fatigue parameters. The values derived may be useful for interpretation of clinical tests or characterization of pathological states in women with similar characteristics. [less ▲]
