Box Jump and Other Exercises – Using the Wireless ROAM-EMG

May - May NWSL Banner for blog

Kinesiology, or human kinetics, is the scientific study of human movement. Kinesiology addresses physiological, mechanical, and psychological mechanisms of body movement and mechanics. Applications of kinesiology include: biomechanics and orthopedics; strength and conditioning; sport psychology; methods of rehabilitation, such as physical and occupational therapy; and sport and exercise. Studies of human and animal motion include measures from motion tracking systems, electrophysiology of muscle and brain activity, various methods for monitoring physiological function, and other behavioral and cognitive research techniques.

The easiest way to understand muscle movements is by the motion you must make to target andMay - ROAM EMGLeg 1 work that particular muscle or muscle group. The best way to simplify all of the movement patterns is to call them “push” or “pull” movements. “Push” movements describe any motion you must make to push the weight away from your body and “pull” movements are those motions you must make to pull the weight into your body. Certain muscle groups complement one another in that they require the same “push” or “pull” movement type to target the muscle.

May - UntitledIt is easy to look at muscle movements and actions when using the wireless technology with the ROAM – just snap on the ROAM and try out some different exercises to see how your muscles are working.  Measure electromyograms of different muscles in a group of muscles and see how each of them work for a variety of different exercises. Box jump, squats, sit-up, curl-ups and more. This lab will allow you to easily record EMG activity on muscles with no wires in the way.

Physiology in Action

Basics of Surface Electromyography Applied to Physical Rehabilitation and Biomechanics

This document was written to assist you in using surface electromyography (SEMG) for biomechanics applications and physical rehabilitation. SEMG is also commonly used in psychophysiology

Muscle networks: Connectivity analysis of EMG activity during postural control

In this study network theory is used to assess the coordination between multiple muscles and to elucidate the neural implementation of muscle synergies.

Assessment of EMG Activity During a TRX® and Traditional Split Squat 

The purpose of this study was ti determine if muscle EMG activity would differ when performing an unstable bodyweight split-squat with the TRX® vs. performing a stable bodyweight split-squat.
