EFFECTS OF DIFFERENT WARM-UPS ON GLUTEUS MEDIUS ACTIVATION


PURPOSE
– There is no evidence commonly used glute activation (GA) exercises will acutely increase recruitment capabilities of the GM
– Therefore, the primary purpose of this research is to examine the effects of different warm-up modalities on GA
METHODS
– 9 men age: 20.7 ±2.1 yrs and 13 women age: 20.2 ±1.4 yrs

– Tested for GA using EMG while performing manual field tests (Cook Hip Lift and a Side-lying Abduction Test) prior to and after performing one of two warm-up exercise conditions:
(1) a standard dynamic warm-up (DW)
(2) or common GA exercises
RESULTS
(1) No significant differences in EMG activity between the GA exercise and DW condition as measured by area under the curve

(2) There were also no main effects of the pre and post conditions
