Reliability of Handgrip Fatiguing Protocol
The purpose of this study is to examine the reliability of an intermittent handgrip fatiguing protocol. This protocol consists of repeated maximal effort isometric contractions using a handgrip dynamometer.
This study will consist of four visits. The first visit will consist of informed consent, eligibility questionnaires, demographics, and ultrasound images of the forearm. The second visit will consist of anthropometrics (height, weight, and body composition), followed by familiarization with the study protocol. The third and fourth visits will be testing visits and will consist of maximal voluntary contractions (MVC) with the handgrip dynamometer, the intermittent handgrip fatiguing protocol, and three recovery MVCs. Temperature and muscle tissue oxygenation will also be assessed via a skin temperature probe and near infrared spectroscopy (NIRS).
Visits 2-4 must be completed at the same time of day and separated by at least 24-48 hours. Each visit will take approximately 30-45 minutes.
