The National Football League combine: performance differences between drafted and nondrafted players entering the 2004 and 2005 drafts.

Interestingly, an early study from Sale and MacDougall (16) showed that powerlifters and bodybuilders possessed similar maximal isokinetic strength for most single-joint exercises tested. Bodybuilders may score well on other single-joint exercises as some powerlifters either do not routinely perform them or do not emphasize them. Because of their training principles, bodybuilders tend to score very well on strengthendurance type of events or display a much lower fatigue rate than powerlifters during various lifting tasks with short rest intervals (12).

MOMENT ARMS AND TENDON INSERTION The location of a muscle’s tendon insertion into bone is another factor contributing to maximal strength expression. The distance from the joint center to the point of tendon insertion represents the moment arm of muscle force, or the effort arm. A tendon inserted slightly further away from the joint poses a mechanical advantage for force production whereas insertion closer to the joint is more advantageous for speed. An athlete with a longer force arm has the ability to lift more weight but at the expense of speed.
