Abstract
The study compared the effect of strength and endurance training and their combination on electromechanical delay (EMD), rate of force development (RFD) and maximum voluntary contraction force in male and female subjects. Two training groups, a strength group (SG, 6 subjects) and an endurance group (EG, 7 subjects) were formed. The SG performed strength training with one leg while combining strength and endurance training with the other. The EG performed endurance training with one leg while combining strength and endurance with the other. The hypothesized reduction in EMD with increased muscle mass or strength as a result of strength training did not occur.
