Abstract

The aim of designing this mechanical apparatus is developing weightlifting starting from different points in jerk by decreasing deviations in weightlifters’ performance during the jerk. The apparatus is adjustable for different weightlifters’ heights. The main part of the apparatus evaluates performance by providing many exercises for developing shoulder and thigh muscles. The apparatus is safe for weightlifters because it has a strap that prevents the bar from falling on the floor and causing injury.
