Although isokinetic tests are very widely used as the screening tool in different groups of athletes, there is still very limited number of studies describing proper shape of isokinetic curve for elite soccer players. Isokinetic evaluations are usually restricted to the analysis of only few values, from hundreds of available parameters. That is why the authors decided to investigate and describe the shape of the model isokinetic curve for elite soccer players, based on 126 isokinetic tests performed at isokinetic velocity of 60°/s. The authors proposed and calculated parameters describing the shape of model isokinetic curve designated for mean and standard deviation of all included into analysis isokinetic tests. The resultant curve shape occurred to be very repetitive in every of three tested repetitions. Results of this study might serve as an useful reference model in physiotherapy or clinical practice thanks to its simplicity in interpretation.
