Force is a push or pull acting on a body which usually causes some distortion of the body, a change in its velocity, or both (27). Force is measured in Newtons or pounds. Force can be hard to describe, but I am going to do my best to make it understandable. The most common type of force in our lives is weight, according to the book Inquiry Into Physics (28)

    Force Force, commonly, a “push” or “pull,” more properly defined in physics as a quantity that changes the motion, size, or shape of a body. Force is a vector quantity, having both magnitude and direction. The magnitude of a force is measured in units such as the pound, dyne, and Newton, depending upon the system of measurement being used. Unbalanced force acting on a body free to move will change the motion of the body. The quantity of motion of a body is measured by its momentum, the product

This is reflective of isokinetic muscle testing. Keep in mind that strength is primarily the production of force, and force is the product of mass and acceleration. (Lawler, 2018). Creating force is essential in every form of exercise, which is why it is included
