English term or phrase: a spike from a kick
Bonjour,

Dans le cadre d'une traduction portant sur le testing musculaire, je me trouve face à cette expression que je ne parviens pas à traduire précisément. Le contexte :
"Make sure the myometer is positioned appropriately to allow a smooth transition as you ask the subject to push/pull.
We want to record a “make” test value, not *a spike from a kick* or fast jerk of movement."

Par avance, merci pour votre aide.
