Abstract

LEARNING OBJECTIVES:

* To learn about electromyography (EMG) and how EMG has been used to measure abdominal muscle activity in more popular abdominal exercise practices, including Pilates, yoga, and standing abdominal maneuvers.

* To see the extent to which these forms of exercise may or may not be effective for enhancing abdominal strength and fitness based on the available EMG research.
