lunge, shoulder mobility, active straight leg raise, trunk stability push-up, and rotary stability. Also, three pass or fail tests, including, shoulder impingement clearing test, spinal extension clearing test and spinal flexion clearing test. Testing took place in the Health and Human Performance lab of the Royal Brougham of Seattle Pacific University. Each test received a score from 0-3 (21 points possible) or a pass/fail rating. After scoring and recording the FMS test results, the mobility test was used for areas that scored less than a 3. The areas checked for mobility on subject 1 included thoracic extension, ankle flexion, shoulder internal and external rotation, hip adduction, and hip flexion. In addition, for subject 2, the mobility areas checked included thoracic extension, ankle flexion, and hip adduction. Furthermore, tests for normal range of motion were conducted in accordance with in class instruction from Dr. Cannavan, the shoulder mobility assessment handout, and the Range of Joint Motion Evaluation Chart (2016) provided by the Washington State Department of Social and Health…
Cаblе Cross-Over Mасhinе Adduсtiоnѕ Fоr Innеr Thighѕ аnd Fоr Better Sԛuаtting
The Thigh Adduction еxеrсiѕе is excellent nоt оnlу for tightеning uр thе innеr thighs, but also dеvеlорing a strong ѕԛuаt. In fact, thе adductor muѕсlеѕ аrе CRITICAL during the squat! Sо it doesn't mаttеr if уоur gоаl is tightеr thighѕ or a stronger ѕԛuаt, the adductor еxеrсiѕе should bе оn уоur liѕt.

Once our lungs have achieved the necessary balance of air to gas pressure (according to Boyle’s Law), the myoelasticity of our vocal chords and the Bernoulli Principle begin to assist in the closure of the our vocal chords, beginning the adduction process. A French mathematician name Daniel Bernoulli (1700-1782) was able to identify an energy principle to determine how internal pressure and liquid or gas content react. Bernoulli’s principle educates us about how the vocal folds…

between the body segments. These movements are flexion (frontal plane, and shoulder) extension, abduction, adduction, rotation, and circumduction. As explained in our text, flexion is a decrease in the angle between two body segments, whereas extension is an increase in the angle between two body segments. Abduction is a movement away from the body, whereas adduction is a movement toward the midline of the body. The rotation is the circular movement of a body segment around a long axis, and…

presence of ligaments. Some lie inside the joint but most of them are outside the capsule. These ligaments acts as strong ties holding the bones together. If a ligament is torn, it may result in faces. A sprain is the condition which results when some of the fibres are torn but the ligament remains intact.
Certain terms are used to describe the movements of the synovial joints. These are :
Gliding is sliding
Flexion is bending
Extension is straightening
Rotation is turning…
Injury: groin strain
Definition of injury: a usually sports-related injury characterized by intense pain in the region of the groin usually due to abnormal straining or stretching of an adductor muscle of the thigh & especially the adductor longus
A strain is the stretching/tearing of a ligament
A ligament connects bone-to-bone
Adduction is the movement of body parts towards the body’s midline

(a) The structure of the rotator cuff consists of four muscles that all play a role in the motion of the rotator cuff. The four muscles that are responsible for this motion are: the Supraspinatus muscle, the Infraspinatus muscle, the Teres Minor muscle, and the Subscapularis muscle. Each of these muscles originate from the scapula and attach into the humerus. The Supraspinatus muscle originates in the Supraspinatus Fossa and attaches to the greater tubercle of the humerus. The infraspinatus…
rotator cuff are teres minor and infraspinatus muscles posteriorly, supraspinatus muscle superiorly and subscapularis muscle anteriorly. The rotator cuff muscles are essential in shoulder movements and in maintaining glenohumeral joint stability. Besides that, the rotator cuff muscles also perform multiple functions, which are abduction, internal rotation and external rotation of the shoulder.

Dynamic stability is the stability of the glenohumeral…
