The purpose of the present study was to examine the maximum isometric force, force produced in initial 100 ms, and vertical jump performance in swimmers with different force-time curve characteristics, such as the index of rate of force development (IRFD), the index of relative force (IRelF), and the index of reactive force (IReaF). Our results showed that swimmers with high IRFD, IRelF and IReaF values presented higher maximum isometric force, force produced in initial 100 ms, and drop jump height. Thus, the ability to develop high levels of maximum isometric force and vertical jump performance depends on force-time curve characteristics.
