Squats Cause Fatigue For 48 Hourse

Squats Cause Fatigue For 48 Hourse

The squat is an important exercise for power athletes. Christian Raeder from Ruhr University in Germany, and colleagues, discovered that neuromuscular fatigue could be detected for at least 48 hours after performing squats.

Young men executed four different intense squat workouts: traditional squats, flywheel squats, eccentric squats and plyometric squat jumps. The immediate metabolic load was greatest during eccentric and flywheel squats.

All programs caused neuromuscular fatigue for minimally 8 hours after exercise, as measured by several jumping tests. Maximum isometric force was reduced for one day but recovered after that.

What power athletes should remember is not to do heavy squats in the days before competition.
