Abstract Thompson, BJ, Stock, MS, Shields, JE, Luera, MJ, Munayer, IK, Mota, JA, Carrillo, EC, and Olinghouse, KD. Barbell deadlift training increases the rate of torque development and vertical jump performance in novices. J Strength Cond Res 29(1): 1–10, 2015—The primary purpose of this study was to examine the effects of 10 weeks of barbell deadlift training on rapid torque characteristics of the knee extensors and flexors. A secondary aim was to analyze the relationships between training… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

Effects of Variable Resistance Training on Kinetic and Kinematic Outcomes during a Heavy Conventional Deadlift
Variable Resistance Training (VRT), loading elastic band tension on a barbell, has shown improvements in force, power, and velocity. Studied extensively in the squat and bench press, VRT is less
comparison of deadlift versus back squatpostactivation potentiation onvertical jump
Performing a hex bar deadlift mainained vertical jump compared to a heavy back squat and may be preferential for acute performance.
Hip and Knee Kinetics During a Back Squat and Deadlift.
Larger hip extensor NJM and PJW during the Deadlift suggest that individuals targeting their hip extensors may yield greater benefit from the deadlift compared with the back-squat.
Effects of 6-week squat, deadlift, or hip thrust training program on speed, power, agility, and strength in experienced lifters: A pilot study
A pilot study to compare the ergogenic effects of back squats, deadlifts, and hip thrusts found that all of the studied interventions show promise but larger investigations are necessary in order to draw more definitive, applicable conclusions.
Shod vs. Barefoot Effects on Force and Power Development During a Conventional Deadlift
Although the US condition may have produced changes in RFD and ML-COP compared with the shod condition, there is only limited evidence in the current study to support this lifting technique for the conventional deadlift.
Effect of Three Different Muscle Action Training Protocols on Knee Strength Ratios and Performance
It is suggested that ECC/ECC training may be the most effective at increasing functional H:Q strength ratios, as well as ECC PT, IPT, CMJ, and DJ performance.
Comparison of Olympic and Hexagonal Barbells With Midthigh Pull, Deadlift, and Countermovement Jump
The DL may be an optimal choice for athletes in jump-dependent sports, regardless of bar, because of the different anatomical characteristics between the MTP and DL and the similarity in joint angles between the DL and CMJ.
Comparison of fatigue responses and rapid force characteristics between explosive- and traditional-resistance-trained males
The results of the present study indicated that only knee extension RTD was able to discriminate between the two groups, suggesting that rapid force production may be more sensitive at distinguishing training-specific muscular adaptations than peak acceleration or velocity.
Effects of Isokinetic Eccentric versus Traditional Lower Body Multiple-Joint Resistance Training on Muscle Function in Recreationally Trained College-Aged Adults
Eccentron multi-joint training displayed test specific improvements for lower body strength in a relatively short amount of time for a trained population.
Effects of isokinetic eccentric versus traditional lower body resistance training on muscle function: examining a multiple-joint short-term training model.
Early adaptations in eccentric training show several advantages over those in concentric training. The purpose of this study was to quantify the effects of 4 weeks of multiple-joint eccentric versus


Effects of Strength and Power Training on Neuromuscular Adaptations and Jumping Movement Pattern and Performance
The PT seemed more effective than the ST in increasing jumping performance, but neither the ST nor the PT was able to affect the SJ and the CMJ movement pattern.
Adaptations in athletic performance after ballistic power versus strength training.
The ability of strength training to render similar short-term improvements in athletic performance as ballistic power training, coupled with the potential long-term benefits of improved maximal strength, makes strength training a more effective training modality for relatively weak individuals.
The optimal training load for the development of dynamic athletic performance.
The experimental group which trained with the load that maximized mechanical power achieved the best overall results in enhancing dynamic athletic performance recording statistically significant (P < 0.05) improvements on most test items and producing statistically superior results to the two other training modalities on the jumping and isokinetic tests.
Resistance training for explosive and maximal strength: effects on early and late rate of force development.
Very early and late RFD responded differently to a short period of resistance training for explosive and maximal strength, highlighting that resistance training programs should consider the specific neuromuscular demands of each sport.
Evaluation of Plyometric Exercise Training, Weight Training, and Their Combination on Vertical Jumping Performance and Leg Strength
The purpose of this study was to compare the effects of 3 different training protocols—plyometric training, weight training, and their combination—on selected parameters of vertical jump performance
The Influence of Professional Status on Maximal and Rapid Isometric Torque Characteristics in Elite Soccer Referees
Findings suggest that rapid torque characteristics of the posterior muscles of the hip and thigh may be sensitive and effective measures for discriminating between full-time and part-time professional soccer referees.
Kinematic and Kinetic Analysis of Maximal Velocity Deadlifts Performed With and Without the Inclusion of Chain Resistance
The results of the investigation suggest that the deadlift can be incorporated effectively in ERT programs and coaches and athletes should be aware that the inclusion of heavy chains may have both positive and negative effects on kinematics and kinetics of an exercise.
Kinematic Analysis of the Powerlifting Style Squat and the Conventional Deadlift During Competition: Is There a Cross-Over Effect Between Lifts?
The kinematic analysis of the squat and the conventional deadlift indicate that the individual lifts are markedly different (p < 0.01), implying that no direct or specific cross-over effect exists between theindividual lifts.
Can Maximal and Rapid Isometric Torque Characteristics Predict Playing Level in Division I American Collegiate Football Players?
The results indicated significant and nonsignificant differences between starters and nonstarters for the early rapid leg flexion torque characteristics that included RTD, IMPULSE, and TORQUE at 30 and 50 milliseconds, and TTRTDpeak.
