Abstract

In has been shown that the variable resistance associated with elastic band training improves strength and several other outcomes. However, the efficacy of combining elastic bands (EB) with traditional resistance exercises is not well understood. PURPOSE: To evaluate performance (kg used and number of repetitions) during the squat exercise using free weights (FW) versus FW with EB applied with tension at the sticking point (50 degrees of knee flexion).
