Current literature recommends incorporating push-up progressions into upper extremity rehabilitation for advanced training of the scapular stabilizers. No documentation exists to demonstrate changes in the level of muscle activation when push-up progressions are performed. The purpose of this study was to determine the effect of difficulty level for push-ups on electrical activity of the scapular stabilizing synergists. Sixteen subjects performed five repetitions for each of the three… CONTINUE READING
