Abstract [en]

The assessment of thigh adductors' strength and endurance and electromyographical (EMG) characteristics has received little attention compared to other muscle groups. The aim of this study was to investigate strength, endurance performance and EMG characteristics of m. adductor longus and m. gracilis during concentric thigh adduction in soccer and bandy players. Muscular endurance was evaluated using the torque reduction during 70 repeated maximum concentric adductions at an angular velocity of 60°/s. The EMG mean frequency (MNF) and the signal amplitude ratio (SAR, index for muscles' ability to relax between contractions) were analysed. Peak torque decreased significantly throughout the test and no significant differences were found between the two groups. In both muscles, MNF decreased significantly throughout the test. There were no significant differences in MNF and in SAR variables between soccer and bandy players. In conclusion, the present findings reveal a number of significant aspects related to strength and electromyography of hip adductors. © 2006 - IOS Press and the authors. All rights reserved.
