The Effect of Pilates Exercise on Trunk and Postural Stability and Throwing Velocity in College Baseball Pitchers: Single Subject Design

The Effect of Pilates Exercise on Trunk and Postural Stability and Throwing Velocity in College Baseball Pitchers: Single Subject Design

Abstract Background Baseball pitchers need trunk strength to maximize performance. The Pilates method of exercise is gaining popularity throughout the country as a fitness and rehabilitation method of exercise. However, very few studies exist that examine the effects of the Pilates method of exercise on trunk strength or performance. Objectives Using a single subject, multiple baseline across subjects design, this…

Assessment of resistance torque and resultant muscular force during Pilates hip extension exercise and its implications to prescription and progression.

Assessment of resistance torque and resultant muscular force during Pilates hip extension exercise and its implications to prescription and progression.

Abstract The understanding of the external mechanics of Pilates exercises and the biomechanics of the joints may guide the prescription of rehabilitation exercises. To evaluate the resistance torque (Γ(R)) during hip extension (HE) exercises performed on the Pilates Cadillac. To perform a biomechanic analysis of the Γ(R) and the weighted mean moment arm (WMMA) in order to calculate the resultant…

Analysis of the external resistance and electromyographic activity of hip extension performed according to the Pilates method

Analysis of the external resistance and electromyographic activity of hip extension performed according to the Pilates method

Abstract Objectives: To compare the electrical activation of the rectus femoris (RF), long head of the biceps femoris (BF) and semitendinosus (ST) and the resistance torque (TR) of the hip extension (HE) movement performed on the Pilates Cadillac with the attachable spring in two different positions. Methods: Twelve subjects performed five hip extensions with the attachable spring in two positions…

Electrical activity of external oblique and multifidus muscles during the hip flexion-extension exercise performed in the Cadillac with different adjustments of springs and individual positions

Electrical activity of external oblique and multifidus muscles during the hip flexion-extension exercise performed in the Cadillac with different adjustments of springs and individual positions

Abstract Background: Despite of the widepread use of Pilates in Physical Therapy, there are few studies that have assessed the muscle electrical activation during Pilates exercises. Objective: Verify the influence of different spring adjustments and individual positions on the electrical activation of multifidus (MU) and oblique external (OE) muscles during hip flexion-extension (HFE) exercise on the Cadillac. Methods: Eight women…

ELECTROMYOGRAPHIC ANALYSIS OF THE RECTUS FEMORIS AND RECTUS ABDOMINIS MUSCLES DURING PERFORMANCE OF THE HUNDRED AND TEASER PILATES EXERCISES

ELECTROMYOGRAPHIC ANALYSIS OF THE RECTUS FEMORIS AND RECTUS ABDOMINIS MUSCLES DURING PERFORMANCE OF THE HUNDRED AND TEASER PILATES EXERCISES

ABSTRACT The literature has shown that small modifications in a Pilates method exercise may change the muscles activation pattern. Moreover, few studies have evaluated Pilates’ exercises from the kinesiology point of view. Therefore, this study aimed to compare a couple of exercises performed on the mat and in apparatus regarding electric activation of acting muscle groups. Eleven healthy Pilates trained…

Marked effects of Pilates on the abdominal muscles: a longitudinal magnetic resonance imaging study.

Marked effects of Pilates on the abdominal muscles: a longitudinal magnetic resonance imaging study.

Abstract The study’s purpose was to analyze the effects of Pilates on the volume of the rectus abdominis (RA), obliques, and transversus abdominis, with the last two considered conjointly (OT). The volume of OT and RA were determined using magnetic resonance imaging in nine nonactive healthy women, before and after 36 wk of a standardized Pilates training program (Modern Pilates).…
