PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to compare mean integrated electromyographic values (EMG(int)) during biomechanically comparable closed kinetic chain/fixed external load, open kinetic chain/moveable no load, and moveable external load exercises. METHODS EMG(int) were obtained for the pectoralis major (PM) and the long head of the triceps (T) during absorption and force phases of three biomechanically comparable exercises: the push-up (PU); the bench press-load (BP-L); and the bench… CONTINUE READING
