Cover Story (view full-size image): Back squat with elastic bands (sometimes the “variable resistance training”) are used by many strength and conditioning coaches in the fields. However, there is no evidence that back squat with elastic bands could reduce the deceleration subphase. The optimal resistance from elastic bands is also unclear. The aim of this study was to investigate whether back squat with elastic bands reduce the deceleration subphase and to determine the optimal additional resistance of elastic bands. This study suggests that back squat with elastic band elicit greater power output during the acceleration and deceleration subphases especially with >80% band resistance. View this paper.
