Isometric Mid Thigh Pull - The Ultimate Performance Test?

Isometric Mid Thigh Pull - The Ultimate Performance Test?

Developments in assessment technology have made tests like the Isometric Mid Thigh Pull (IMTP) foundational strength and power assessments for athletes globally.‍

What is the IMTP?

A maximal isometric action allows individuals to produce a greater force than a maximal concentric action. The IMTP requires an individual to pull on a fixed barbell with a maximal effort for 3-5 seconds. When performed on top of a Stomp-IT plate, the test can quantify peak force and rate of force development (RFD).

The isometric mid-thigh pull test is an effective and reliable way to test maximal strength in youth and adult athletes. Research has shown that performance variables from the IMTP test correlate to athletic movements such as the vertical jump and sprint speed. Administering the IMTP test is a safer and more time-efficient method than traditional 1RM testing which also benefits athletes with a low training age.
