Abstract : A strength test battery (STB) was developed to predict performance on Navy job tasks with substantial muscular demands. The STB includes 14 tests representing four strength factors--static, dynamic, power, and anthropometric. The STB was administered to men and women recruits and evaluated for battery administration time, differences in men's and women's scores, relationship between strength and body weight, sensitivity of the STB to measure changes resulting from physical conditioning, and the tests' validity and reliability.
