The electromyographic activity of the biceps brachii--BB (long head), triceps brachii--TB (long head) and deltoideus--DA (clavicular portion) muscles, during the going (G) and return (R) phases in "front support" exercise, as well the efficacy of this exercise for the development of these muscles strength were studied in 10 male volunteers. The values were normalized through maximum voluntary isometric contraction (MVIC = 100%) and statistically analyzed using the Friedman, DMS and Wilcoxon non… CONTINUE READING
