Street fitness equipment, Powerlifting, Strength, Coefficient


Background: The training process to develop the strength of athletes on street exercise simulators with a variable load for powerlifting is not a systematically studied problem. The aim of the study was to analyse the impact of systematic training on street simulators with a variable load on the strength indicators of women and men in powerlifting. Study participants: athletes from 20 to 35 years old (n = 48), engaged in powerlifting at least four times a week, divided into groups: women (n = 24) and men (n = 24). Interventions: Implementation of systematic exercises for women and men in powerlifting on street exercise simulators with variable load for five months. For the performance diagnosis, the powerlifter coefficient (Pl) was applied: (bench press + sed + deadlift) / athlete's mass in kilograms. Main outcome measures: the experiment revealed a positive result in increasing the strength of men (p < .05) and did not reveal a reliable result (p > .05) in increasing the strength in women between the control and experimental groups. Based on an individual comparison of each participant in the experimental group, it was revealed that the implementation of the street training process is significantly (p < .01) more effective in increasing strength in men with a Pl coefficient below the average (< 3.53). Findings. The data obtained are especially valuable in the condition of the activation of street fitness among women and men in the conditions of the closure of gyms caused by the regime of self-isolation during the spread of COVID-19.
