At the beginning of the concentric phase of the traditional deadlift, the lever arm of the hip joint, in relation to the load, is longer, creating greater stress in the extensor muscles of the hip (Andersen et al., 2018).
Another purpose of our study was to disclaim the negative correlation between knee extension angles and isokinetic extensor muscle strength.
Findings of the variance analysis test showed a significant difference in leg extensor muscle changes of the subjects of the three control, RT and Hatha YT groups following an 8-week training course (P [less than or equal to] 0.05) (Table 2).
In the present study, we found that the lumbar extensor muscle profile of rural milk production workers was characterized by higher values for the men compared to the women, 1,169.35 [+ or -] 289.96 N and 571.34 [+ or -] 190.36 N, respectively.
A statistically significant increase was detected in the 60[degrees]/second and 180[degrees]/second angular velocity PT values in the flexor and extensor muscles around the knee at third month of treatment compared to baseline values (p<0.05).

Maximal isometric strength of the knee extensor muscles was evaluated by use of an isokinetic dynamometer (Kin-Com, Chattecx, USA) [3, 4], as previously described in detail [4].
One cohort executed abduction/adduction exercises showing an increase of the cortical volume in the trochanter whereas the second cohort executed squat/deadlifts exercises showing an increase of the cortical volume in the femoral neck and a concomitant cross section area and lean-tissue fraction increase in the hip extensor muscles [5].
