Abstract Background. The aim of this study was to analyze the relationship between the isokinetic shoulder strength of the athletes and their performance on strength field tests. Data on the balance and functional strength ratios of the internal and external rotator muscles of shoulders of handball players was also investigated.Methods. Twenty-seven female athletes (23 +/- 3.4 years, 71 +/- 10.6 kg and 173.3 +/- 7.1 cm) underwent an isokinetic assessment of the strength of the shoulder rotator muscles. Athletes also performed the following strength field tests: bench press test, lying bench barbell row test, handgrip test, and medicine ball throwing.Results. The bench press test results and the lying bench barbell row test results were significantly correlated with the concentric internal and external rotator peak torques at 1.05 rad.s(-1) and 5.23 rad.s(-1), with total work at 1.05 rad.s(-1) and with average power at 5.23 rad.s(-1) (r=0.51 to 0.81).Conclusion. We suggested the use of field test to infer about internal and external rotator muscular strength, but not to infer about isokinetic muscular strength ratios. These findings could be useful to coaches and trainers.
