  • Question regarding strength testing

    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
