Comparing Muscle Movement and Involvement between Boxing Punches

Measure EMG for boxing punchIn the fast-paced, high-intensity combat sport of boxing, the right punch can win a fight. However, boxing is also a sport where opponents can become exhausted in mere minutes of action, and prioritizing their strength is key to winning a fight. This team recorded EMG on test subject’s bicep and tricep muscle groups while recording force, in order to study the muscle involvement and energy utilized in jab and cross punches.

Utilizing Specialized Weightlifting Shoes for a Better Front Squat Position

Special wedged weightlifting shoes are utilized by some weightlifters as a tool to support correct squat posture. This position is extremely important when deadlifting hundreds of pounds, as even slightly incorrect posture can cause severe injuries. Interested in the popularity of these wedged shoes, Southwestern University researchers conducted a study to track how these shoes affect trunk lean, hip flexion, and more. EMG measurements in corresponding muscle groups were simultaneously tracked in AcqKnowledge. Read the Full Study: Effects of Using Wedged-Weightlifting Shoes When Performing a Front Squat (Brielle Adolph, Scott P. Mclean)

Tracking Physiological Data Points in a Lunge

The forward lunge is an extremely popular exercise for track and field athletes as it stretches leg and core muscles while developing balance. Utilizing a Tri-Axial Accelerometer and Surface EMG amplifier from BIOPAC, this study reported correlational data between multiple physiological measurements during a study involving track & field athletes performing lunge movements.
