Two studies investigated the use of lumbar integrated electromyography (iEMG) during flexion-extension exercises of the lumbar spine. The first study compared the iEMG fatigue slopes of 12 pain-free controls during a standardized isotonic workout with a heavy weight and a light weight. Results indicated that the slopes of the iEMG across flexion-extension… CONTINUE READING
