A quick test (QT) protocol has been developed to allow the rapid testing of a number of muscle groups in order to profile body strength. The maximum muscle strength using a standard test (ST) protocol was obtained from the best of three five second trials with a 1 minute rest between trials and no more than 4 muscles tested per day. The QT protocol allows only a 5 second rest between trials. Using the QT protocol and testing 13 muscle groups in one session vs. 5 sessions with the ST protocol resulted in an average reduction for the QT values of 4%.
