  1. All data are reported as means ± standard deviation, unless specified otherwise. Effect sizes reported for between exercise [7] and between performance standard [34], A positive effect size indicates the left-hand column (farmers walk or higher performer) had a greater value than the respective right-hand column (unloaded walk or lower performer).* significant difference to unloaded walking, † significant difference to low performing athletes, ☼ significant difference to acceleration phase, ˟ comparison between phase based on distance, AP acceleration phase, ave average, GRF ground reaction force, MVP maximum velocity phase, SVP submaximal velocity phase
