Table 2 Significances (p < 0.05) between muscle forces of goodmornings with 25% (GM25), deadlifts with 25% (DL25) and 50% (DL50) as well as the front and rear limb of the split squats with a step length equal to 70% of participant’s leg length and a tibia angle of 90° (70% 90° front; 70% 90° rear) with 25% of the participant’s bodyweight as additional load on the barbell

  1. Quadriceps (quad), including m. vastus lateralis (vl), m vastus intermedius (vi), m. vastus medialis (vm) and M. rectus femoris (rf); Hamstrings (ham) including m. biceps femoris short head (bs), m. biceps femoris long head (bl), m. semimembranosus (sm) and m. semitendinosus (st); m. gluteus maximus muscles (glut), including three different parts, the lateral part (lp), the intermedial part (ip), and the medial part (mp) were examined
