The effects of exercise type and elbow angle on vertical ground reaction force and muscle activity during a push-up plus exercise
- MedicineBMC Musculoskeletal Disorders
The highest activity of the serratus anterior occurred at 55° of elbow extension during the concentric phase of the traditional PUP and not at the plus phase ofThe exercise, suggesting that when prescribing an exercise to target the serRatus anterior, a traditional push-up is adequate and the plus-phase is not necessary.
Differential activation of parts of the serratus anterior muscle during push-up variations on stable and unstable bases of support.
- MedicineJournal of electromyography and kinesiology : official journal of the International Society of Electrophysiological Kinesiology
The lower serratus anterior showed increased activation on an unstable surface, which required more joint stability than did the stable base, and the upper and lower parts of the trapezius were investigated by surface EMG during four types of exercise.
COMPARISON OF MUSCLE ACTIVATION USING VARIOUS HAND POSITIONS DURING THE PUSH‐UP EXERCISE
- MedicineJournal of strength and conditioning research
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.
Anatomical and biomechanical mechanisms of subacromial impingement syndrome.
- MedicineClinical biomechanics
Subacromial impingement syndrome is the most common disorder of the shoulder, resulting in functional loss and disability in the patients that it affects, and evidence exists to support the presence of the anatomical factors of inflammation of the tendons and bursa.
Motion of the shoulder complex during multiplanar humeral elevation.
- MedicineThe Journal of bone and joint surgery. American volume
Overall shoulder motion consists of substantial angular rotations at each of the four shoulder joints, enabling the multiple-joint interaction required to elevate the arm overhead.
Relative Balance of Serratus Anterior and Upper Trapezius Muscle Activity during Push-Up Exercises
- MedicineThe American journal of sports medicine
Clinical selection of exercises for improving scapular control should consider both maximum serratus activation and upper trapezius/serratus anterior ratios and the push-up plus is an optimal exercise.
Progressive high-load strength training compared with general low-load exercises in patients with rotator cuff tendinopathy: study protocol for a randomised controlled trial
This trial is a randomised, participant- and assessor-blinded, controlled multicentre trial to compare the efficacy of progressive high-load exercises with traditional low- load exercises in patients with rotator cuff tendinopathy.
Selective Activation of Shoulder, Trunk, and Arm Muscles: A Comparative Analysis of Different Push-Up Variants.
- MedicineJournal of athletic training
The narrow-base variant to emphasize triceps and pectoralis activity and the BP variant for total upper body strength conditioning should be implemented carefully in participants with low back pain because of the greater activation of abdominal and back muscles.
Stabilizing characteristics of rotator cuff muscles: a systematic review
- MedicineDisability and rehabilitation
The findings demonstrate the need for more research into the proposed stabilizing mechanisms of the rotator cuff muscles to increase diagnostic accuracy and more targeted shoulder rehabilitation programs.
