The aim of this investigation was to get an apprehension of the capacity of repeating voluntarily exerted static forces in a row without visual feed-back in three situations viz. two-hand-lift, foot pedal press and thigh-raise. Seven subjects participated. It seems that the degree of precision is approximately a little below 10%.
