Abstract

The purposes of this study were to (1) derive and test allometric scaling models of biceps isometric strength using body mass (BM) and muscle cross-sectional area (CSA) as the scaling variables, (2) assess the influence of body mass index (BMI) by separating the cohort by BMI (normal < 25 kg/m(2) vs. overweight/obese
