No non-invasive test exists for forearm exercise that allows identification of power-time relationship parameters W′, critical power and thereby identification of the heavy-severe exercise intensity boundary and scaling of aerobic metabolic exercise intensity. The aim of this study was to develop a maximal effort handgrip exercise test to estimate forearm critical force fCF; force analog of power and establish its repeatability and validity. Ten healthy males 20–43 years completed two maximal effort rhythmic handgrip exercise tests repeated maximal voluntary contractions MVC; 1 s contraction-2 s relaxation for 600 s on separate days. Exercise intensity was quantified via peak contraction force and contraction impulse. There was no systematic difference between test 1 and 2 for fCFpeak force p = 0.11 or fCFimpulse p = 0.76. Typical error was small for both fCFpeak force 15.3 N, 5.5% and fCFimpulse 15.7 N⋅s, 6.8%, and test re-test correlations were strong fCFpeak force, r = 0.91, ICC = 0.94, p<0.01; fCFimpulse, r = 0.92, ICC = 0.95, p<0.01. Seven of ten subjects also completed time-to-exhaustion tests TTE at target contraction force equal to 10%fCFpeak force. TTE predicted by W′ showed good agreement with actual TTE during the TTE tests r = 0.97, ICC = 0.97, P<0.01; typical error 0.98 min, 12%; regression fit slope = 0.99 and y intercept not different from 0, p = 0.31. MVC did not predict fCFpeak force p = 0.37, fCFimpulse p = 0.49 or W′ p = 0.15. In conclusion, the poor relationship between MVC and fCF or W′ illustrates the serious limitation of MVC in identifying metabolism-based exercise intensity zones. The maximal effort handgrip exercise test provides repeatable and valid estimates of fCF and should be used to normalize forearm aerobic metabolic exercise intensity instead of MVC.
