increasing performance. Conversely, participants further away from their PHV 1 showed stronger decreases in CV. Growth and weight gain affect the moments of inertia and it has been shown that muscle strength does not increase proportionally to produce higher joint torques ( Jensen, 1981 , 1989 ). Athletes

. This implies that (a) participants relied equally well on visual and haptic (through the feet) feedback to position themselves in what felt like a “stable” position or (b) the optimal position was one in which joint torque was minimized; this was determined by biomechanical constraints, like size

study suggested that low seat height can increase L5–S1 joint ROM during STS. 49 Besides, it has been reported that low seat height can result in an increase in the amount of paraspinal muscles activation and in the L5–S1 peak net joint torque compared with high and neutral seat heights. 49 Hence
