THE EFFECT OF MUSCLE IMBALANCE ON MOTION OF SQUAT
Keywords: Muscle imbalance, Squat, Isokinetic, Motion pattern
AbstractINTRODUCTION: Some authors (Ann 2005) have suggested that muscle imbalance between antagonist and agonist, and deficits can have a negative influence on functional ability and thus be a cause of musculoskeletal injury. The primary purpose of this research was to understand and investigate the motional and muscle activity characteristics, of the overhead and back squat, considering the participants’ muscle imbalance.
