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.

    Effect of resistance training on lumbar extension strength

      This research study aimed to demonstrate how strength exercise testing on the pelvic region can evaluate lumbar extension and range of motion. By performing different exercises and a maximum isometric strength test, subjects were ultimately able to increase their pelvic stabilization and gain strength. Data was observed and recorded.

      Comparison of Restraint Systems for Pelvic Stabilization

        In this study, the two different restraint systems to isolate the lumbar extensors were explored.
        The two different restraint systems are used through the pelvic
        stabilization by preventing movements in the lower part of your body while seated. Restraints are located on the knees and on the bottom of the feet. The goal of the study is to see how the restraint systems can influence lumbar extension strength and the shape of isometric lumbar extension strength curve.
