Pelvic Stabilization During Resistance Training

    The goal of this research study was to determine how exercise training affects the development of lumbar extension strength. This study was also dependent on the presence or absence of pelvic stabilization. The study included different subject groups with different measurements being observed. The data was recorded and proposed in this study.

    Muscle Physiology & Resistance Training

      This chapter provides an overview of the physiological principles related to assessing muscular strength and the methods for developing and
      sustaining muscular strength through exercise. It specifically focuses on the evaluation and training of the isolated lumbar extensor muscles,
      synthesizing research findings. Normative data for both genders and the interpretation of strength curves are included. Important considerations for evaluating and conditioning the lumbar extensor muscles, such as static and dynamic testing techniques, muscle fatigue characteristics, counterweighting effects, total torque, net muscular torque, strength curves, and the trainability of these muscles, are discussed.

      Lumbar Strengthening in Chronic Low Back Pain Patients

        In this study, the physiological and psychological benefits of strengthening the lumbar extension are explored. Chronic low back pain affects many people and the goal of the study is to see if strengthening the lower back muscles helps mitigate lower back pain as well as helping mental health.

        Limited Range of Motion Lumbar Extension Strength Training

          The study, “Limited Range of Motion Lumbar Extension Strength Training” is from the Official Journal of the American College of Sports Medicine. Range of motion in lumbar extension
          strength training are explored. Patients with lower back pain who have lower range of motion use isometric testing and exercises to try and strengthen their lower back.

          Frequency and Volume of Resistance Training: Effect on Cervical Extension Strength

            This research study aimed to demonstrate how volume and strength training has an effect on the strength of the cervical area of the spine. Four groups of subjects participated in the study engaging in different rehabilitating exercises using the MedX Cervical Extension machine. Maximum torque output, cervical extension, and cervical flexion were measured and recorded through the study.

            Low back strengthening for the prevention & treatment of low back pain

              In this research study, strengthening of the low back is demonstrated to treat and prevent low back pain. Rehabilitation through lumbar extension strengthening is believed to improve strength, endurance, and mobility. Improvements in low back pain show potential for the reduction of pain for patients.
