Abstract

Surrogate measures of weightlifting performance (WLp) have previously been monitored using loaded and unloaded squat jumps (SJ) (Bazyler et al 2018; Travis et al 2018; Carlock et al 2004) and countermovement jumps (CMJ) (Carlock et al 2004). Typically measures of jump height (JH) (Travis et al 2018; Carlock et al 2004) and peak power (PP) (Carlock et al 2004), and their associated scaled counterparts (Travis et al 2018; Carlock et al 2004) have been used to identify relationships between them and WLp. While these variables have been shown to have moderate to strong relationships (r = 0.60-0.93) (Carlock et al 2004), further information into the underpinning mechanisms that contribute to such outcome measures has not yet been investigated and may provide insight into variables more sensitive to change; thus, owing to the continued monitoring process.
