The purpose of this study will be to measure muscle activity in selected upper extremity and torso muscles using electronic non-shocking sensors. Subjects will perform a series of three exercise conditions requiring the participant to complete a pulling exercise while maintaining the spine in a neutral position. The three exercises will be performed using a suspension strap training system.
Physical therapists, personal trainers, and strength and conditioning specialists spend substantial time teaching clients how to strengthen their core. Core muscles provide a stable base for limb movement. Little research has been done looking at specific core and extremity muscle activation with variations of push-up exercises, specifically using the TRX© suspension system.
