In this activity, students analyse data from an experiment that measures force and velocity for various load conditions in a bench press situation.
By the end of this activity, students should be able to:
- use given force and velocity values to calculate power produced for different bench press loads
- interpret and graph data and make predictions
- discuss some of the methodology researchers used while setting up this experiment.
