Summary:
The purpose of the present study was to investigate if any relationship exists between anthropometric measurements with average concentric velocity (ACV) at various intensities in the back squat and the number of repetitions able to be performed during a set to volitional fatigue at 70% of one-repetition maximum (1RM). It was hypothesised that short femurs and total height would be related to slower ACVs and lower total number of repetitions performed. 58 resistance trained subjects were recruited and attended one day of data collection. Subjects performed 1RM testing of the back squat followed by two single repetition sets at 30-90% of 1RM and a 70% of 1RM set to fatigue. There was no significant correlation between femur length and height with ACV at any intensity (p>0.05). A significant negative correlation existed between both height (r=-0.39, p=0.003) and femur length (r=-0.31, p=0.018) with total number of repetitions performed.
