Hip and Knee Kinetics During a Back Squat and Deadlift

Choe, KH, Coburn, JW, Costa, PB, and Pamukoff, DN. Hip and knee kinetics during a back-squat and deadlift. J Strength Cond Res 35(5): 1364–1371, 2021—The back-squat and deadlift are performed to improve hip and knee extensor function. The purpose of this study was to compare lower extremity joint kinetics (peak net joint moments [NJMs] and positive joint work [PJW]) between the back-squat and deadlift. Twenty-eight resistance-trained subjects (17 men: 23.7 ± 4.3 years, 1.76 ± 0.09 m, 78.11 ± 10.91 kg; 11 women: 23.0 ± 1.9 years, 1.66 ± 0.06 m, 65.36 ± 7.84 kg) were recruited. One repetition maximum (1RM) testing and biomechanical analyses occurred on separate days. Three-dimensional biomechanics of the back-squat and deadlift were recorded at 70 and 85% 1RM for each exercise. The deadlift demonstrated larger hip extensor NJM than the back-squat {3.59 (95% confidence interval [CI]: 3.30–3.88) vs. 2.98 (95% CI: 2.72–3.23) Nm·kg−1, d = 0.81, p
