UB – BACK – TRAPS – STRENGTH & MUSCLE BUILDING


  • THE ENTIRE TRAP IS HEAVILY INVOLVED WITH CHINS, LAT PULLS, ROWS PLUS OTHER EXERCISES

· SUPPVERSITY EMG SERIES – BACK ·



· ELEVATION (SHRUG UP)


NOTE: ELEVATION ALSO OCCURS WITH OVERHEAD PRESS






· RETRACTION (SHRUG BACK)


NOTE: RETRACTION ALSO OCCURS WITH CHINS, LAT PULLS, ROWS




· DEPRESSION (SHRUG DOWN)


NOTE: DEPRESSION ALSO OCCURS WITH CHINS, LAT PULLS, ROWS




SELECTIVE RECRUITMENT OF THE LOWER FIBERS OF THE TRAPEZIUS MUSCLE

 EMG amplitudes recorded from the upper (UT), middle (MT) and lower (LT) trapezius muscle fibers in males across all five exercises. LP = Latissimus Pull Down, PF = Posterior Fly, PR = Prone Row, PV = Prone V-Raise, and MC = Modified Prone Cobra. The bars represent the mean values, with error bars representing the 95% confidence intervals. For each muscle, exercises marked with ‘*’ are significantly different from exercises marked with ‘**’, and exercises marked with ‘**’ are significantly different from exercises marked with ‘***’.

Isolation values computed from EMG amplitudes recorded from the upper (UT), middle (MT) and lower (LT) trapezius muscle fibers in both males and females across all five exercises. LP = Latissimus Pull Down, PF = Posterior Fly, PR = Prone Row, PV = Prone V-Raise, and MC = Modified Prone Cobra. The bars represent the mean values, with error bars representing the 95% confidence intervals. For each muscle, exercises marked with ‘*’ are significantly different from exercises marked with ‘**’, exercises marked with ‘**’ are significantly different from exercises marked with ‘***’, and exercises marked with ‘***’ are significantly different from exercises marked with ‘****’.2
