The purposes of this dissertation were to examine the agreement the agreement between double integration using the trapezoidal method and measurements for push-off distance to create force-velocity profiles, examine the change in push-off distance between loading conditions when force-velocity profiling, and to observe the alterations in mechanical outputs of force-velocity profiles after 15-weeks of off-season training. The major findings are as followed. Using double integration with the trapezoidal method may be a reliable way to estimate push-off distance, despite a small systematic bias. This bias should have negligible effects on push-off distance and therefore not alter or effect calculations in a meaningful way. Therefore, using double integration for push-off distance estimation may provide the ability to retrospectively create force-velocity profiles. The analysis of change in push-off distance at each loading condition suggests that there is 5-10% change in push-off distance between conditions. The significant changes in push-off distance occurred between the bodyweight condition and 20 kg as well as bodyweight and 40 kg loading conditions. The observed mechanical output alterations after training did not yield any significant changes in mechanical outputs. However, based on the observed output changes in conjunction with the previous training, force-velocity profiling may be primarily indicative of acute training styles.
