Differences in Postural Trunk Lean When Implementing a Decline Squat Protocol

This research was done as part of our final year biomechanics module. We explored the hypothesis that squatting on a 20° angle decline ramp will result in a more upright trunk at the bottom of the squat, potentially reducing the risk of lumbar spine injury during squatting when ankle dorsiflexion range is limited.

The abstract for this research was selected for poster presentation at the BASES Student Conference 2020, but unfortunately due to Covid-19 the conference was cancelled, so my colleagues and I decided to present it online.
