Popular topics for upper body resistance training involve the differences between hand positions, open versus closed chain exercises, and movement variations for the novice to the advanced. We hypothesized that there will be no difference between closed (push-up) versus open (bench press) chain exercises for the primary muscle group activity nor would there be a difference between push-ups on the toes versus knees with respect to the percent contribution of each muscle. We measured surface… CONTINUE READING
