Upon constructing a testing table by which many of the formerly proposed strength tests by use of cable tensiometer can be administered, a series of strength tests were conducted using Japanese subjects of certain age levels. The results were found to be acceptable in that high reliability was obtained and in that the phasic variations of strength upon change of involved joint angles were of consistent with other studies. Some new tests were then proposed and conducted successfully, i. e., isometric strength in simulated modified pull-up, simulated press-up, simulated sit-up and simulated back hyper-extension actions, applying the testing device.
