Influence of hip rotation on activation of individual human thigh muscles during isometric knee extensor exercises
Ettema, Gertjan, Weinrauch, Patrick C., & Kippers, Vaughan (1996) Influence of hip rotation on activation of individual human thigh muscles during isometric knee extensor exercises. In Eleventh Congress of the International Society of Electrophysiological Kinesiology.
Because of the importance of knee extensor strength and the stabilising functions of muscles acting on the knee, conditioning of the knee musculature is an essential factor in effective sporting performance and rehabilitation. Although the influence of hip flexion on knee extensor strength has been studied before, the effects of hip axial rotation, frequently used to produce specific effects in strength training, have been largely neglected. The purpose of this study was to examine the effects of hip rotation upon thigh muscle activation during isometric knee extensions in well trained strength athletes.
