The aim of the current study was to investigate the EMG activity of pectoralis major and latissimus dorsi muscles during the pullover exercise. Eight healthy male volunteers took part in the study. The EMG activity of the pectoralis major and that of the latissimus dorsi of the right side were acquired simultaneously during the pullover exercise with a free-weight barbell during both the concentric and eccentric phases of the movement. After a warm-up, all the subjects were asked to perform the…

Muscle Activation Pattern During Isometric Ab Wheel Rollout Exercise in Different Shoulder Angle-Positions
TLDR
The present findings indicate that Ab Wheel Rollout exercise emphasizes the muscle action of the Pectoralis Major and Rectus Abdominis more than the Latissimus Dorsi and Erector Spinae and the level of muscle activation depends on the external force created by the body mass and lever arm from the center of mass.
Comparison of shoulder and trunk muscle activation between different pullover exercises
TLDR
The muscles with higher level of activation were the Posterior Deltoid and the Infraspinatus, suggesting that pullover may be a valid option for strengthening the dynamic stabilizing muscles of shoulder joint in trained individuals.
Activity of shoulder girdle muscles during the perfect push-up and push-up bar exercises using different hand positions in young overhead athletes
TLDR
WSW hand position may be used during a push-up when the goal is to strengthen PM; whereas, an NSW hand positions may be utilized for the selective strengthening of TB muscle.
The moment arms of the muscles spanning the glenohumeral joint: a systematic review
TLDR
This systematic review of the moment arms of the major muscles spanning the glenohumeral joint during abduction, flexion and axial rotation shows that the rotator cuff muscles function as humeral rotators and weak humeral depressors or elevators, while the three sub‐regions of the deltoid behave as substantial humeral elevators throughout the range of humeral motion.
ANÁLISE ELETROMIOGRÁFICA DOS MÚSCULOS BICEPS BRACHII E LATISSIMUS DORSI NO EXERCÍCIO "PUXADA ALTA" EM DIFERENTES EMPUNHADURAS ELECTROMYOGRAPHIC ANALYSIS OF BICEPS BRACHII AND LATISSIMUS DORSI IN THE "LAT PULL-DOWN" EXERCISE IN DIFFERENT HANDGRIPS
TLDR
It is concluded that in the CSG can be used higher load when compared with OPG; electromyography activity was greater in the lat pull-down exercise with the OPG only for the latissimus dorsi muscle, without difference in the biceps brachii.

Shoulder Muscle Activation Levels During Four Closed Kinetic Chain Exercises With and Without Redcord Slings
TLDR
It is suggested that RS might be an appropriate training tool when used within a general strengthening program but should not be preferred over a stable base of support when training for specific scapular stabilization purposes.

TLDR
Limitations of ROM for flexion, abduction, and internal rotation were found to be significantly lower in the arm on the side of CIED compared with the control arm, and a low to moderate amount of shoulder disability measured by Shoulder Pain Disability Index and Shoulder Disability Questionnaire was found in patients with CIEDs.
Latissimus Dorsi Tear in an Olympics-Level Tennis Player: Case Report and Review of Literature.
TLDR
A complete rupture with retraction of the latissimus dorsi tendon that occurred during a competitive match in an international level tennis player and the player returned to competitive tennis within 6 weeks and won the Asian Games men's doubles tennis gold medal 53 days following his injury.

Voluntary Increase in Latissimus Dorsi Muscle Activity During the Lat Pull-Down Following Expert Instruction
TLDR
The results show that untrained individuals can voluntarily increase the activity of a specified muscle group during the performance of a multijoint resistance exercise, but the increase probably does not represent “isolation” of the muscle group through voluntary reduction of activity in complementary agonist muscles.
Effects of Variations of the Bench Press Exercise on the EMG Activity of Five Shoulder Muscles
TLDR
The EMG signals during the 2-sec lift indicated some significant effects of trunk inclination and hand spacing, and the sternocostal head of the pectoralis major was more active during the press from a horizontal bench than from a decline bench, and anterior deltoid activity tended to increase as trunk inclination increased.

Multigrip Flexible Device: Electromyographical Analysis and Comparison With the Bench Press Exercise
TLDR
It seems from the results that this multigrip warpable fitness device is worth considering for both warm-up and strengthening matters and in the field of physical therapy and rehabilitation, allowing, for instance, progressive force production in upper-limb joint strengthening processes.
Muscle activation differences between eccentric and concentric isokinetic exercise.
TLDR
The IEMG activity of the antagonists in this study indicate that the antagonist activity is an important factor that affects the resultant joint moment during isolated isokinetic maximum voluntary joint movements.

Analysis of Muscle Activation During Different Leg Press Exercises at Submaximum Effort Levels
TLDR
It is found that coordination patterns of muscle activity are different when performing LP variations at high or moderate effort levels because of mechanical changes and different loads lifted during the different LP exercises.
INCREASED DELTOID AND ABDOMINAL MUSCLE ACTIVITY DURING SWISS BALL BENCH PRESS
TLDR
Investigating muscle activity using surface electromyography of upper-body and abdominal muscles during the concentric and eccentric phases of the bench press on and off a swiss ball showed that deltoid and abdominal muscle activity was increased for repetitions performed using the sw Swiss ball.
A KINETIC AND ELECTROMYOGRAPHIC COMPARISON OF THE STANDING CABLE PRESS AND BENCH PRESS
TLDR
EMG findings show that SCP performance is limited by the activation and neuromuscular coordination of torso muscles, not maximal muscle activation of the chest and shoulder muscles, which has implications for the utility of these exercise approaches to achieve different training goals.
