The aim of my research
is to observe and analyse the Barbell squat as it relates to the technique.
When observing the technique faults were identified and analysed. Proper
guidance and coaching points were given to see if the correction would develop
proper technique. The outcome variable of my research was the Barbell back
squat in which it was measured on a four point technique measurement scale (Myer et al 2014). The predictor
variable of this research was the surveying of the Barbell back squat and a
successive implementation of remedial exercises for the barbell Back squat
(Myer et al 2014).
The Back squat is
widely regarded as one of the most
effective exercise used to enhance athletic
performance because it necessitates the co-ordinated interaction of
numerous muscle groups and strengthens
the prime movers needed to support
explosive athletic movements, such as:
jumping, running and lifting (Myer et al 2014).
The Back squat has four
phases: Isometric/start position, Eccentric lowering/Approach parallel
position, lower Isometric/maintaining lower posture, Concentric raising
/original posture (Yule 2005). The relevance of the proper technique exercise
in the back squat is believed to reduce the risk of injury and can also be
useful for growth in specific muscles (Comfort and Kassim 2007).
The motive of this
research is to obtain concrete interpretation, of the affirmative procedures of
how to carry out the Barbell back squat and what outcomes and abilities occur.
This research will gather quantitative data and I will use a Pre and Post
design test. In reviewing a positive stand to progress by altering
inappropriate techniques and the ability of the
barbell squat through development and restorative exercises.
In the warm up there
was a 8 minutes jogging on the spot in the sport centre. After the jog the
participant did 20-30 jumping jacks along with some dynamic stretches of the
body parts which will be in full use. The participant was asked to do the
regular squats, building the required muscles. The tips given to the participant was; extending of
arms over head, keep back very straight, do not
look down as this will cause the back to
bend and they will have a bad posture. These were some of the occurrence discovered to enhance a better
and safer squat. The participant will take place in three(3) pre trials done on
a 4 point technique measurement scale in which
each trial consist of four repetitions. After the Pre trial analysis
there was a mean score calculated. After analysing the pre test remedial
exercises were prescribed. This session lasted for twenty five minutes. After
each sets there is a two minute break.
After the pre test there was a three minutes break then there was remedial exercise
given in which the remedial exercise were to be included in the post
