Force Displacement during Front Squats Using Three Different Shod Conditions

Location

Subject Area

Description

Introduction: Improving technique and strength in resistance training is a popular topic, including footwear. The purpose of this study is to determine which of three shod conditions, barefoot, Roshe, and basketball shoes, results in greater force displacement.

Methods: Seven collegiate football players (19.3 years) completed four days of an 85% repetition maximal front squat protocol over the span of four weeks. A lifting session consisted of a ten-minute warm up, followed by a five-minute weight build up and a three repetition trial. Force displacement was measured using a force plate during the three repetition trial. For each session, participants completed the protocol in a different shod condition in which the order was randomly assigned.

Results: There were no significant differences in force displacement between the three shod conditions.

Discussion: Participants prefer one shod condition over the others; however, when measuring force displacement, there is no difference. Future research could examine the effect of different shod conditions on range of motion.
