Push-up is a common exercise used for strengthening the upper extremity muscles. Knowledge of elbow kinematics and kinetics may be helpful in preventing injuries due to push-ups if the elbow shear force can be reduced. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of different push-up speeds on elbow joint loading. Fourteen healthy male graduate students volunteered for this investigation. In a motion analysis laboratory, the Expert Vision motion system with eight 240 Hz…

Effect of Push-up Speed on Upper Extremity Training until Fatigue
The experimental results suggest that push-up exercises should be performed at a faster speed when the aim is to achieve a certain number of repetitions, but should be performing at a slower speed when it is to strengthen the upper extremity muscles.
Elbow joint fatigue and bench-press training.
The results suggest that performing bench-press exercises to the point of fatigue increases elbow-joint loading and may further increase the risk of injury.
Kinetic analysis of push-up exercises: a systematic review with practical recommendations
Overall, this review provides detailed data on specific characteristics and intensities of push-up variations, in order to optimise exercise prescription for training and rehabilitation purposes.
Does Upper Trapezius Activity IncreaseSubstantially Over a 2-Minute Push-Up Bout?
It is speculated that the decrease in force output at the end of the bout is a result of the lower body supporting a larger percent of body weight (likely observed through increased hip flexion); an altered body position that requires less activation of the UT.
A biomechanical assessment of fajin mechanisms in martial arts
Background As a mar tial arts technique, fajin (“exerting strength”) is a reasonable and efficient method of utilizing muscle strength. The purpose of this study was to explore fajin movement
Bilateral Radial Head Fracture Secondary to Weighted Push-Up Exercise: Case Report and Review of Literature of a Rare Injury
A 33-year-old male presented with bilateral radial head fractures after weighted prone push-up exercise. The patient had Mason type I and II on right and left sides, respectively. He was managed
Teaching the Proper Push-up Position
What to look for when observing students' push-up technique is described, in order to build strength and to limit the potential for injury.
The evolution of androgen receptor expression and behavior in Anolis lizard forelimb muscles
Examining six anole species that demonstrate significant variation in the behavioral use of the forelimbs to measure the proportion of myonuclei in the bicep muscles that express androgen receptors suggested that AR expression in skeletal muscles may influence the evolution of androgen-regulated behaviors in this group.
Arrangement of Joint Distraction and Hinge Alignment during Elbow Dynamization Using an Arthrodiatasis Fixator
The preparation for the pin shift and the estimation of both the center locus and hinge jiggle produces significantly better joint distraction and hinge alignment during elbow dynamization.


Biomechanical Analysis of the Elbow Joint Loading During Push-Up
The purpose of this study was to investigate the static and dynamic forces within the joints during push-up loading of the upper extremity. Ten healthy male students volunteered for this study. They
Kinematic and kinetic analysis of push-up exercise.
The purpose of this study was to experimentally measure and analytically determine the load across the wrist, elbow, and shoulder joints during push-ups to better understand the nature of this
Hand position affects elbow joint load during push-up exercise.
An insight is given into the biomechanics of a normal elbow and to its load-carrying capacity and the data may be extrapolated to the design of rehabilitation programs and possibly to the mechanisms of forearm injury during a fall.
Elbow load with various forearm positions during one-handed pushup exercise.
Outward rotation of the hand is a stressful position that should be avoided during one-handed pushup exercise or forward falls with outstretched hands in order to reduce the risk of elbow injuries.
Differences existed for most vertical force variables but not for anteroposterior force and time variables, and dynamic behavior and muscle activity were significantly altered between push-up EV.
Effect of elbow flexion on upper extremity impact forces during a fall.
In insights into how the physical demands of arresting mild falls may relate to upper extremity muscle capacity, joint dislocation and bony fracture are yielded, a biomechanical model for a simulated fall with outstretched hand is developed.
Intersegmental elbow joint load during pushup.
The results of this analysis give insight to the biomechanics of a normal elbow and to its load carrying capacity.
Elbow load during pushup at various forearm rotations.
It was noted that greater posterior and varus forces of the elbow are encountered with internal rotation of the hand position and, consequently, full forearm pronation in pushup with hands in internally rotated position should be prevented.
It is suggested that, if a goal is to induce greater muscle activation during exercise, then push-ups should be performed with hands in a narrow base position compared with a wide base position.
Use of EMG analysis in challenging kinetic chain terminology.
Results from this study support the theory that activities of similar biomechanical motions and mass of loading, regardless of the boundary condition, have comparable EMG values of primary muscle groups and suggest external load is more important than boundary condition in describing human activity.
