Leg Muscle Activity in Back Squat Variations
“Leg Muscle Activity Measured Via Electromyography in Back Squat Variations”
The purpose of the study is to see how different forms of the squat exercise change my body's leg muscle activity. Four forms of the traditional back squat will be used: traditional back squat, barefoot squat, box squat, and traditional back squat with chains.
Traditional Back Squat
Participants will complete traditional back squat in this four treatment crossover design.
Barefoot Back Squat
Participants will complete barefoot back squat in this four treatment crossover design.
Participants will complete box squat in this four treatment crossover design.
Traditional Back Squat with Chains
Participants will complete traditional back squat with chains in this four treatment crossover design.
