6.Angular Displacement:
= angular displacement
f= final angular position
i = initial angular position

Matt's Hip Angle Displacement
=f-i
=94- 87
= -7

Matt's Knee Angle Displacement
=f-i
=73- 100
= -27

Alex's Hip Angle Displacement
=f-i
=80- 69
= 11

Alex's Knee Angle Displacement
=f-i
=162- 140
= 22

7. Yes my kinematic analysis of the Knapsack Deadlift shows that Matt would be more
successful at performing the exercise than Alex. Alex's knee angle stays relatively open when
doing the exercise while her hip angle changes a lot. This means that she is pulling most of the
weight with her back muscles. This can be dangerous when using heavier loads as more
pressure is being put on the low back with little assistance from the legs. If you examine the
graphs one can see that Matt's lines for both his Hip and Knee angle are consistent with one
another. You can clearly see the initial pull, when he reaches the top of the movement, and the
lowering phase. Alex's lines are very different and one may have a difficult time figuring out
where she is at in her lift just by using the graphs and not the photos.
