A recently developed abdominal muscle test (AMT), using four levels of difficulty to assess abdominal muscle strength, was validated by examination of the functional interrelationship between the individual muscles during the AMT, and by determining the relationship between the AMT level of difficulty and electromyographical (EMG) activity. EMG data were collected from the upper and lower rectus abdominis, and the external and internal oblique in 22 subjects as they participated in the AMT… CONTINUE READING
