Surface Electromyography Analysis in Division 1 Female Soccer Players During Dynamic Movements
Arts and Sciences
The purpose of this study was to analyze muscle activation in dynamic movements through sEMG assessment in the right and left legs of female D1 freshman soccer players. The question to be answered was “What is the difference in muscle amplitude in right and left legs during dynamic movement as measured by sEMG?” Seven freshman female soccer players from a Northwest Indiana university participated in this study by completing dynamic movements. The participants were instructed to come to the study clean shaven as the electrodes were placed above the muscle belly. The dynamic movement analyzed in this study was the lateral double hop. In this movement the participants jumped back and forth laterally four times over an eight-inch hurdle. Statistical analysis showed no significant differences in the right and left legs of the female soccer players. The muscles included were the rectus femoris, tensor fasciae latae, adductor longus, lateral and medial gastrocnemius, and the lateral and medial vastus lateralis.
