Six Competitive Female weightlifters (Olympic weightlifters)

 

3x3 90% 1RM Clean Pull

 

3 Separate Testing Days

 

1: No tubing

2: Tubing with 10% of athlete’s 1RM

3: Tubing with 20% of athlete’s 1RM

 

1 way repeated measure analysis of variance (ANOVA)

 

Measures: Peak Power, Peak Velocity, and Peak Force

 

Summary: Adding 10% of athlete’s 90% 1RM in bands appears to be optimal training modality for increasing power, force and velocity throughout the clean pull.

 

·      We condone the use of bands for power training in athletes; if you have any questions or have a reference request please contact us.
