The purpose of this study was to determine the effects of hip flexion angles and Kinesio-taping on lumbar extension strength. Forty healthy participants(male=20, female=20) were volunteered for this study. It was used to measure lumbar extension strength with the back strength dynamometer in five angles($0^{\circ}$, $20^{\circ}$, $40^{\circ}$, $60^{\circ}$ & $80^{\circ}$ hip flexion). It was used to estimate and compare back extension strength with independent t-test, paired t-test, correlation analysis and ANOVA. The results of this study were as follows; First, lumbar extension strength was the most achieved at $40^{\circ}$ hip flexion in male and female(p<0.05). Second, lumbar extension strength was showed a statically increase(p<0.05) in $0^{\circ}$, $20^{\circ}$, $40^{\circ}$, $60^{\circ}$ and $80^{\circ}$(except male) after appling taping. These results proposed to us the conclusion that back muscle strength was influenced by hip flexion angles and Kinesio-taping in the lifting work.
