  • The purpose of this current study was to investigate the effect of different heel heights on lower extremity muscle activation during back-squat performance. Eight healthy active male collegiate students with back-squat experience volunteered for the study (BH: 1.83 ± 0.09m; BM: 88.45 ± 16.46kg). Each subject performed five trials of backsquat performance in four different heel height conditions (0, 0.5, 0.75, 1 inch; 1.27, 1.91, 2.54 cm, respectively) in random order. Mean muscle activations… CONTINUE READING
