Sperandei, S, Barros, MAP, Silveira-Júnior, PCS, and Oliveira, CG. Electromyographic analysis of three different types of lat pull-down. J Strength Cond Res 23(7): 2033-2038, 2009-The purpose of this work was to evaluate the activity of the primary motor muscles during the performance of 3 lat pull-down techniques through surface electromyography (EMG). Twenty-four trained adult men performed 5 repetitions of behind-the-neck (BNL), front-of-the-neck (FNL), and V-bar exercises at 80% of 1…

Electromyographical Comparison of a Traditional, Suspension Device, and Towel Pull-Up
TLDR
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.
Effects of Grip Width on Muscle Strength and Activation in the Lat Pull-Down
TLDR
A medium grip may have some minor advantages over small and wide grips; however, athletes and others engaged in resistance training can generally expect similar muscle activation which in turn should result in similar hypertrophy gains with a grip width that is 1–2 times the biacromial distance.
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.
Kinematic and electromyographic comparisons between chin-ups and lat-pull down exercises
TLDR
Normalized EMG of BB and ES and kinematics of shoulder and C7 for chin-up were greater than lat-pull down exercises during the concentric phase and subsequently, chin-ups appears to be a more functional exercise.
Effects of the pullover exercise on the pectoralis major and latissimus dorsi muscles as evaluated by EMG.
TLDR
The present findings demonstrated that the barbell pullover exercise emphasized the muscle action of the pectoralis major more than that of the latissimus dorsi, and the higher activation depended on the external force lever arm produced.

Effects of Pre-Exhausting the Biceps Brachii Muscle on the Performance of the Front Lat Pull-Down Exercise Using Different Handgrip Positions
TLDR
It is found that PE of the BB promotes a decreased performance in the FLPD exercise along with a greater RPE, especially when using a narrow handgrip position.
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.

TLDR
Being able to train for the pull-up through similar modified or alternative exercises would assist with both progress tracking and assessment, as well as developing appropriate exercise-specific periodized programs.

A Comparative Electromyographical Investigation of Muscle Utilization Patterns Using Various Hand Positions During the Lat Pull‐down
TLDR
Performance of the lat pulldown exercise using the WGA hand position produces greater muscle activity in the LD than any other hand position during both the concentric or eccentric phases of the movement.
Electromyographic Activity of the Hamstrings During Performance of the Leg Curl, Stiff-Leg Deadlift, and Back Squat Movements
ABSTRACTTo compare the effectiveness of 3 weight-training movements for the hamstrings, 11 weight-trained men performed 3 repetitions at 75% of 1 repetition maximum of the leg curl (LC), stiff-leg

The synergy of elbow extensor muscles during dynamic work in man
TLDR
The muscular synergy between the elbow extensors was studied during the braking of voluntary elbow flexion performed in a horizontal plane at various velocities and inertias to derive a chronology of muscular activities which depends on both velocity and inertia.
Isokinetic evaluation of shoulder rotational strength between the plane of scapula and the frontal plane
TLDR
Preliminary results suggest isokinetic strength training and testing may be preferable in the plane of the scapula rather than the frontal plane, with no significant difference between the two positions for shoulder internal rotational strength values.
Low back loads over a variety of abdominal exercises: searching for the safest abdominal challenge.
TLDR
It was concluded that a variety of selected abdominal exercises are required to sufficiently challenge all of the abdominal muscles and that these exercises will-differ to best meet the different training objectives of individuals.
Anterior shoulder instability in weight lifters
TLDR
The symptoms, physical findings, and results of treatment for 23 shoulders in 20 athletes are presented, and one hundred percent of the athletes experienced posterior shoulder pain when the shoulder was placed in forced abduction and external rotation.
Weight-Training Injuries
TLDR
Prepubescent and older athletes who are well trained and supervised appear to have low injury rates in strength training programmes and good coaching and proper weightlifting techniques are likely to minimise the number of musculoskeletal problems caused by weight-training.
