In order to find the benefits of the waist belt (WB) in Tug of War (TOW) sport, the purpose of this study was to compare kinematic differences between two-handed (TH) and WB pulling backward exercises. The team that holds the gold medal record for the World Indoor TOW Championships 2004 participated in this study (N=20). According to threedimensional video analysis procedures using the direct linear transformation analysis method, the mean body center of mass (CaM) displacement during TH and…

INFLUENCES OF SOME SPORTS SHOES ON THE STRENGTH OF PULLING EXERCISE IN INDOOR TUG-OF-WAR
INTRODUCTION Friction forces are acting in the contact plane of two bodies and thus, one of them being the earth's surface, horizontal forces can be generated. This paper describes research being
Volitional Postures during Maximal Push/Pull Exertions in the Sagittal Plane
TLDR
It is shown that foot placement, handle height, and body postures affect push and pull force capability in a manner that is reasonably logical, using biomechanical concepts.
BIOMECHANICAL CONSIDERATIONS OF PULLING FORCE IN TUG OF WAR WITH COMPUTER SIMULATION
The purpose of this study was to investigate pulling force in tug of war in accordance with the changes of the tuggers’ posture using the computer simulation, and considering the characteristics of
Symmetric and Asymmetric Two-Handed Pull-Push Strength of Young Adults
TLDR
M Males were significantly stronger than females for most activities, however, with increased postural asymmetry, the difference between genders declined.
Static force exertion in postures with different degrees of freedom.
TLDR
The results of further research show that the exerted force is reproducible in free, functional, and standardized postures, and the conclusion is that force exertion in free posture is most suitable for design research.

TLDR
The objective of this study was to describe injury patterns among elite tug of war athletes, using a survey method, and found that the back, shoulder–upper limb, and knee were most commonly injured.

Physiological and metabolic characteristics of elite tug of war athletes
TLDR
The data indicate that international level tug of war participants have excellent strength and above average endurance relative to body size, but have relatively low explosive leg power and back flexibility.
