Baseline Measurement Protocols For muscle activation, an MVC protocol established baseline measures of the selected lower extremity muscles. EMG values were expressed as a percentage of amplitude from the MVC

muscle activation (during these postures) in the large muscle groups is associated with insulin resistance, increased triglycerides levels, and suppression of high density lipoprotein cholesterol levels 7 , 8 and is, therefore, an important aspect in SB and its association with declined health. So, not

posterolateral) of the SEBT, because it was reported that these 3 directions measure the same constructs as the other 5 directions of the SEBT. However, the recommendation was not based on the electromyographic (EMG) data. 3 , 10 So far the muscle activation of the LE during all the 8 directions of the SEBT was

bout rate enhancement was reported in healthy individuals ( Hansen, Ebbesen, Dalsgaard, Mora-Jensen, & Rasmussen, 2015 ). Briefly, the phenomenon constitutes a cumulating increase in freely chosen tapping frequency following submaximal muscle activation and movement consisting of externally unloaded

The analysis did not reveal a significant difference in the CSA of the RA or LAW between the groups, so we could not confirm that ST was superior to EMS for increasing the CSA of the RA and LAW; moreover, muscle activation was

Co-contraction was also calculated for the gastrocnemius medialis and vastus lateralis. The statistical analysis for each of the 18 conditions included a calculation of the means and

Overall, the results of the present study showed that 8 weeks of plyometric training can elicit significant neuromuscular adaptations in cricketers from different age groups by improving their muscle activation

dyskinesis is an alteration of static scapular position and dynamic scapular motion that contribute to a lengthening of the posterior musculature and shortening of the anterior musculature, which may contribute to abnormal muscle activation. 3 Fortunately, scapular dyskinesis and SIS can be effectively
