I am designing an experiment to test the isometric push and pull strengths
of paraplegics in their functional reach space areas. I would like to
know if anyone knows how long a inter-trial rest period is needed for
5 second maximal exertions which involve the arm and trunk to varying
degrees and at varying angles.
Caldwell suggests 3 minutes generally, but other sources suggest less time
depending on the situation.
Any additional guidance would be most helpful.

Thanks in advance
