Abstract

The purpose of this study was to provide biomechanical data analysis of the squatting lift skill of an elite weight lifter. The performance of the athlete (X. Z.) was studied by means of 3-D fixed video testing and data analysis. Some key parameters of the body and barbell in every important phase were provided in this article. The objective was to profile a sample of biomechanics pattern of this technique with these parameters. The results of the study showed that the subject (X. Z.) performed the squatting and propping skill too long to complete catching barbell movement after the barbell reached the maximum speed. However the attempt was surprisingly successful. This proved that the strength of the lower limbs was sufficiently strong enough to complete the move.
