We tested the hypothesis that abdominal muscles are active during the expiratory phase of the respiratory cycle during exercise. Electromyographic (EMG) activities of external oblique and rectus abdominis muscles were recorded during incremental exercise to exhaustion and during 30 min of constant work rate exercise at an intensity of 85 % of the peak oxygen consumption rate (V(O(2))). High amplitude intramuscular EMG activities of both abdominal muscles could be evoked with postural manoeuvres… CONTINUE READING
