Hi guys, regarding the classic force velocity curve by hill most of the literature suggests that the highest power outputs occur at light to moderate intensity around 30-60% . The problem with the force velocity curve by hill is that it doesnt take into account the contribution of the stretch shortening cycle. If the stretch shortening cycle is contributing to force development we can achieve higher force outputs at higher velocities. For example Hatfield describes in his book power: a scientific approach, that an athletes highest power output occured at around 78 % of 1RM with exercises like the squat bench curl etc.

looking at some scientific data ( http://bretcontreras.com/should-we-train-at-30-of-1rm-to-maximize-power-production/ ) there is a wide spectrum at which the highest power output was measured btw 20 and 80%.

How can we explain the difference?

I havent looked deeper into the research, it was just smth i stumbled upon while reading. maybe somebody can help me out

Peak power is protocol dependent. Hence it is measurement “phenomena” – not sure it has anything to do with reality, especially not using that range to train “power” (as some latent biomotor quality). We need to hit the whole continuum
