Abstract :

Lacio ML, Teixeira JD, Vieira JG, Santana D, Amorim GD, Coelho MA, Campos YAC, Dias MR, Panza P, Novaes J, Vianna JM. Electromyographic Activation of Pectoralis Major and Triceps Brachii during Dumbbell Pullover. JEPonline 2021;24(4):1-11. The purpose of this study was to compare the electromyographic activity of pectoralis major (PM), sternal (PMS) and clavicular portions (PMC) and triceps brachii long portion (TB) muscles, with different elbow positions in the dumbbell pullover exercise. Thirteen males participated in this study. Initially, anthropometric measurements and 10 repetition maximum test (10-RM) were performed. After initial tests, on two non-consecutive days separated by 48 hours, the electromyographic signal was collected in the dumbbell pullover exercise with 90% 10-RM load, performed with elbow extension or elbow flexion. In both elbow positions, the electromyographic activation of TB was greater than PMC (P Keywords: Resistance Training, Pectoralis Muscles, Surface Electromyography, Torque
