Abstract : The purpose of this study was to determine the effect of lift height on the one repetition maximum box lifting strength (1 RM) of men and women. Ten men and eleven women lifted to heights of 1,2,3,4,5,and 6 ft using a 46.5 cm long x 31 cm wide x 23 cm high aluminum box with handles. All lifts were accomplished using correct lifting technique while facing forward. An ANOVA, focused on six heights and blocked for gender was used for analysis. A Newman-Kuels post-hoc analysis was used to examine the significant differences between means.
