❏ To assess whether the SWI exists during whole body loading such as a deadlift
❏ Determine if the body is able to adapt to the illusion with repetitions
❏ Identify mechanical factors that explain or overcome the respective illusion/perception
❏ The SWI will be observed and will be reflected in the VAS ratings
❏ The magnitude of the SWI will decrease over additional repetitions
❏ Mechanical variables will reflect the degree of illusion perceived
