Abstract

The purpose of this study was to compare the effects of parallel squat training and hip sled training on the quadriceps femoris strength of college-age males. More specifically, the investigation compared the effects of eight weeks of three days per week progressive resistance training using the parallel squat and hip sled exercises on strength as measured by 1-RM parallel squat, 1-RM hip sled, and peak quadriceps torque. The hypotheses tested, stated in the null form, are as follows: 1. There will be no significant difference in changes in strength as measured by one repetition maximum parallel squat among the parallel squat training group, hip sled training group, or control group. 2. There will be no significant difference in changes in strength as measured by one repetition maximum hip sled among the parallel squat training group, hip sled training group, or control group. 3. There will be no significant difference in changes in strength as measured isokinetically by peak quadriceps torque at 60 degrees per second among the parallel squat training group, hip sled training group1 or control group.
