Table 5 Association between dynamic muscle strength and functional performance tests, SF-36 subscale and fatigue score

From: Low dynamic muscle strength and its associations with fatigue, functional performance, and quality of life in premenopausal patients with systemic lupus erythematosus and low disease activity: a case–control study

Dependent variable Independent variable β ^ Standard error R2 P-value

  1. β ^ = parameter estimate, R2 = coefficient of determination; 1-RM = one repetition maximum is the largest possible load of a particular movement; 1-RM -total = sum of total load lifted in the 1-RM tests (i.e., leg press, leg extension, leg curl, chest press, and lat pulldown); SF-36 self-administered health questionnaire - Short Form Health Survey 36, FSS fatigue severity scale.
