Snarr RL, Esco MR. Comparison of Electromyographic Activity When Performing an Inverted Row With and Without a Suspension Device. JEPonline 2013;16(6):51-58. This study determined the extent of electromyographic (EMG) activity of the latissimus dorsi (LD), middle trapezius (MT), posterior deltoid (PD), and biceps brachii (BB) while performing the inverted row (IR) with and without a suspension training (ST) device. Eleven men and 4 women participated in this study. Each subject performed 4… Expand

Figures and Tables from this paper

Electromyographical Comparison of Plank Variations Performed With and Without Instability Devices
Results indicated that planks performed with the instability devices increased EMG activity in the superficial musculature when compared with traditional stable planks, suggesting that a traditional plank performed on a labile device may be considered an advanced variation and appropriate for use when a greater challenge is warranted. Expand
Electromyographical Comparison of a Traditional, Suspension Device, and Towel Pull-Up
Only one muscular difference existed between the exercise variations and all versions examined provided electromyographical values, determined by current literature, to invoke a sufficient stimulus to promote increases in muscle strength and hypertrophy, so practitioners can be confident when programming any of the movement variations examined when attempting to elicit adaptations of muscular strength andhypertrophy. Expand
Muscle activation in suspension training: a systematic review
Muscle activation in the upper extremity and core muscles varied greatly amongst studies, and was greater with suspension exercises relative to comparable traditional exercises, except for the inverted row. Expand
Scapular muscle balance and spinal stabilizer recruitment during an inverted row
Activation of seven muscles promoted safe containment of the humeral head within the glenoid fossa during the IR in healthy persons and potentially people with the tendency for development of SIS. Expand
Evaluation of Training Load During Suspension Exercise.
The proposed models could provide different methods to quantify the training load distribution, even if the use of the straps' length could result easier and faster than body inclination angle, helping practitioners and instructors to personalize the workout to reach specific purposes and provide load progression. Expand
The Acute Effects of Different Forms of Suspension Push‐Ups on Oxygen Consumption, Salivary Testosterone and Cortisol and Isometric Strength
It appears that when matched for work, suspension exercise results in equivalent reductions in muscle force, but greater oxygen consumption compared to isotonic exercise. Expand
Effects of eight weeks of TRX versus traditional resistance training on physical fitness factors and extremities perimeter of non-athlete underweight females
It can be concluded, that the traditional and TRX training have created almost same improvements in physical fitness factors, so TRXTraining can be considered an efficient choice to do alongside traditional training or as its alternative in order to earn desired training achievements. Expand
Bodyweight BOSU Ball Exercises
This column provides detailed descriptions of the proper technique, advanced progressions, and exercise prescription for 4 bodyweight BOSU ball exercises. Expand


Electromyographic Activity of Rectus Abdominis during a Suspension Push-Up Compared to Traditional Exercises
This investigation indicated that SPU and C provided similar activation levels of the RA that were significantly greater than PU. Expand
Not All Instability Training Devices Enhance Muscle Activation in Highly Resistance-Trained Individuals
The results indicate that the use of moderately unstable training devices (i.e., Dyna Disc, BOSU ball) did not provide sufficient challenges to the neuromuscular system in highly resistance-trained individuals. Expand
Surface Electromyographic Activation Patterns and Elbow Joint Motion During a Pull-Up, Chin-Up, or Perfect-Pullup™ Rotational Exercise
The Perfect·Pullup™ rotational device does not appear to enhance muscular recruitment when compared to the conventional pull-up or chin-up and a general pattern of sequential activation occurred suggesting that pull-ups and chin-ups were initiated by the lower trapezius and pectoralis major and completed with biceps brachii and latissimus dorsi recruitment. Expand
Variations in muscle activation levels during traditional latissimus dorsi weight training exercises: An experimental study.
Variations in latissimus dorsi exercises are capable of producing small changes in the myoelectric activity of the primary movers. Expand
Comparison of Different Rowing Exercises: Trunk Muscle Activation and Lumbar Spine Motion, Load, and Stiffness
The inverted row elicited the highest activation of the latissimus dorsi muscles, upper back, and hip extensor muscles, and the standing 1-armed cable row challenged the torsional capabilities of the trunk musculature. Expand
Grip Width and Forearm Orientation Effects on Muscle Activity During the Lat Pull-Down
Compared-measures analysis of variance for each muscle revealed that a pronated grip elicited greater LD activity than a supinated grip, but had no influence of grip type on the MT and BB muscles. Expand
Muscular contribution to low-back loading and stiffness during standard and suspended push-ups.
Compared to the standard version of the exercise, suspended push-ups appear to provide a superior abdominal muscle challenge, however, for individuals unable to tolerate high lumbar IVJ compressive loads, potential benefits gained by incorporating suspended Push-ups into their resistance training regimen may be outweighed by the risk of overloading low-back tissues.
