The purpose of this study was to examine the effects of external load on vertical ground reaction force, and linear and angular kinematics, during squats. Eight males aged 22.1 ± 0.8 years performed maximal concentric squats using loads ranging from 7 to 70% of one-repetition maximum on a force plate while linear barbell velocity and the angular kinematics of the hip, knee and ankle were recorded. Maximum, average and angle-specific values were recorded. The ground reaction force ranged from 1… Expand
Assessments of Ground Reaction Force and Range of Motion in Terms of Fatigue during the Body Weight Squat
TLDR
End-of-exercise fatigue caused an increase in the ROM of the hip, knee and ankle and it is observed that fatigue induced increased ROM, also increases the GRF towards the forefeet. Expand
Comparison of Peak Ground Reaction Force, Joint Kinetics and Kinematics, and Muscle Activity Between a Flexible and Steel Barbell During the Back Squat Exercise
TLDR
Great vertical ground reaction forces, hip moment, hip power, knee power, and muscle activity of the vastus lateralis, Rectus abdominis, rectus femoris, and external oblique suggest the FB provides biomechanical and physiological mechanisms for training gains over the SB for 30% of 1-repetition maximum loads. Expand
Positive and negative loading and mechanical output in maximum vertical jumping.
TLDR
The results suggest that subject's own body provides the optimal load for producing maximum mechanical output in vertical jumping, and could support the hypothesis that the muscular system is designed for producingmaximum mechanicalOutput in rapid movements when loaded only with the weight and inertia of its own body. Expand
Peak lifting velocities of men and women for the reduced inertia squat exercise using force control
TLDR
The relationship between resistance force and peak lifting velocity is applicable to increasing the efficiency of the squat by maximizing force output per repetition by varying the resistance as the lifter approaches peak velocity similar to isokinetics with preloading and active instead of reactive resistance. Expand
Effect of Supportive Equipment on Force, Velocity, and Power in the Squat
TLDR
This investigation has demonstrated significantly different kinetic and kinematic characteristics between squats without (NSS) and with an SS, which could ultimately aid in enhancing squat performance. Expand
Morphological Analysis of Force/Velocity Relationship in Dynamic Exercise at Varying Loads
TLDR
Results show that the F/V relationship does not follow a linear shape and an equivalent criterion for all loads, and a “second peak force” statistically higher than the inversion peak at 80 and 90% 1RM indicated a higher ability to produce and maintain greater force at higher relative speed. Expand
Effects of load on good morning kinematics and EMG activity
TLDR
Estimated hamstring length, integrated EMG activity of the hamstrings and spinal erectors, and kinematics of the lumbar spine, hip, knee, and ankle are affected by changes in load. Expand
External loading and maximum dynamic output in vertical jumping: the role of training history.
TLDR
The results suggest that the human muscular system of the lower limbs could be designed to produce the maximum power output against the loads that are well below the mass and inertia of the human body. Expand
Optimal loading for maximal power output during lower-body resistance exercises.
TLDR
This investigation indicates that the optimal load for maximal power output occurs at various percentages of 1RM in the JS, S, and PC. Expand
The effects of a heel wedge on hip, pelvis and trunk biomechanics during squatting in resistance trained individuals.
TLDR
The results lend support for the suggestions provided in literature aimed at utilizing heel wedges as a means of reducing excessive forward trunk flexion, but not for reduction in relative trunk-pelvis flexion during barbell back squats. Expand

Force/velocity and power/velocity relationships in squat exercise
TLDR
The extrapolation of W˙max from the power/velocity equation showed that it would be reached for a load close to body mass, or even under unloaded conditions, although the maximal power and optimal velocity were never reached. Expand
Influence of load and stretch shortening cycle on the kinematics, kinetics and muscle activation that occurs during explosive upper-body movements
TLDR
Investigation of the influence of load and the stretch shortening cycle (SSC) on the kinematics, kinetics, and muscle activation that occurs during maximal effort throws found explosive movements involving longer concentric actions than experienced during brief SSC movements may be limited by the ability of the muscle to produce force during fast contraction velocities.

TLDR
It is suggested that increase in the performance of the skeletal muscles through prestretching was attributed to the combined effects of the utilization of stored elastic energy and the reflex potentiation of muscle activation. Expand

The results suggest that muscular torque production varies across velocities and contraction modes and that this relationship varies depending on the joint angle of torque measurement. Expand
Joint moments of force and quadriceps muscle activity during squatting exercise
TLDR
Knee joint load can be limited by doing parallel instead of deep squats and that this will not decrease quadriceps muscle activity, and to limit hip moment, the squat should not be deeper than 90°. Expand
