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.
