A Practical Approach to Training the Muscle Synergies

…ground reaction forces during gait motions. Thus exercises mimicking this movement pattern would emphasize the deep longitudinal subsystem. The Sagittal Plane Hop with Stabilization (Figure 6) is an example of a deep longitudinal subsystem exercise. It improves muscle synergies and neuromuscular…

Shoulder Pain Prevention

…should design exercise programs from an integrated (all-inclusive) perspective. An integrated exercise program encompasses both uniplanar and multiplanar movements; single, compound and total-body exercises; and adequately targets on all muscle groups (prime movers and stabilizers). Shoulder Injury…
