Isometric Mid-Thigh Pull

Measuring muscular strength is a central component in athletic training. We developed the Isometric Mid-Thigh Pull (IMTP) system especially for the Olympic base in Hamburg, which has proven to be an efficient method for determining maximum strength.

What is the Isometric Mid-Thigh Pull (IMTP)?

The IMTP test is a proven method for measuring maximum strength and shows correlations with vertical jumps and sprints. This method involves pulling on a stationary bar with maximum effort for 3-5 seconds.

Why is the IMTP important?

The IMTP offers a safer and time-saving alternative to traditional 1RM testing. The data obtained allows coaches to evaluate the performance of their athletes and create individual training plans.

How to perform the IMTP test?

A standardized protocol is required to perform the IMTP test. With the correct equipment and preparation, valuable insights into strength and power development can be gained.

Benefits of IMTP in training?

The integration of IMTP into training promotes the development of strengths and supports athletes in making their sporting goals measurable and thus achieving them more specifically.


The Isometric Mid-Thigh Pull is an innovative method for measuring strength and forms a solid basis for developing effective training programs.
