Generally, it occurs in a muscle, already weakened by tendinitis, after a sudden backward movement of the arm, e.g., during a throw. This movement is relatively common in baseball, tennis, and any sport involving a throwing action, but it also occurs in the snatch in weightlifting. During this motion, tension is suddenly placed on the long head of the biceps brachii, most often where Its tendon passes through the bicipital groove of the humerus. Weightlifting, specifically the deadllft, with heavy weights can cause another characteristic biceps brachii injury. This technique, although usually safe, can in rare Instances cause...

In the evaluation of the sacral plexus, the electromyographer examines muscles innervated by peroneal and tibial divisions of the sciatic nerve in multiple myotomes both below and above the knee, followed by gluteal-innervated muscles, and followed finally by lower paraspinal muscles. For example, to distinguish between peroneal neuropathy and more proximal lesions causing foot drop, i.e., sciatic neuropathy or lumbosacral plexopathy, EMG abnormalities are sought in the short head of the biceps femoris (peroneal division of the sciatic nerve, above the knee) in addition to the tibial-innervated tibialis posterior. Additional abnormalities in gluteal-innervated muscles then help localize the lesion to the sacral plexus, proximal to the sciatic nerve.
The duration of the motor unit is perhaps its most important characteristic (Fig. 11). The duration reflects how dispersed the motor unit is in time and space and is the least affected by proximity of the needle electrode to the motor unit being recorded. Generally, short-duration motor units are commonly observed in myopathic conditions, whereas long-duration motor units are observed in neurogenic disorders. In any muscle, motor unit size will vary within a distribution of durations however, some muscles (e.g., those of the quadriceps or triceps) have longer-duration units than those of others (e.g., iliopsoas and biceps). Duration of the MUP is also age-dependent, because larger motor units are observed more prominently in older people, due to the normal drop out of motor neurons in the spinal cord with advancing age. Although normal values for this parameter have been painstakingly obtained for people of different ages, with experience, one can learn to be comfortable identifying...
Motor nerve conduction studies (MNCS) are useful mostly for demonstrating significant axonal loss in motor fibers. However, routine MNCS will be abnormal in plexopathy only if the nerve under study is derived from the involved trunk or cord of the brachial plexus. Thus, routine MNCS of the median and ulnar nerves provide information relevant only to the lower trunk medial cord and C8-T1 nerve roots. Unusual conduction studies may be performed for the evaluation of other plexus lesions for example, information regarding the upper trunk lateral cord and C5-6 roots may be obtained from MNCS of the musculocutaneous nerve, recording from the biceps brachii. These studies are technically more difficult than routine MNCS and the range of response amplitudes is large a good rule of thumb when performing these or other technically difficult or unusual studies is to obtain results from the uninvolved contralateral limb and compare the responses for significant asymmetries in amplitude ( 50...

Rest between training exercises.28 In addition, strength training differs conceptually and in practice from endurance training.29 For the respiratory muscles, training is ill defined and although it is felt that the respiratory muscles should behave in a similar manner to other muscle groups, definitive studies have yet to show how they may be trained. It is likely that the response to training will in part be genetically determined. The general observation that some individuals are responsive to and have ability at certain types of exercise has led to studies showing genetic differences in the response to training according to genotype.30 A genetic polymorphism of the angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) gene has been described with a 256 base pair deletion or insertion, termed DD or II.31 In de-trained subjects there is an 11-fold difference between homozygous subgroups in response to performing a repetitive biceps exercise.30 Recently, respiratory muscle strength and endurance was...

When training the biceps brachii using a barbell, take into account variations in each person's physical structure. This is one of the best exercises for working the biceps brachii. Fixing the arms against the support makes it impossible to cheat. Pectoralls major Biceps brachii
Biceps femoris, short head Semitendinosus. Gluteus maximus lumbar spine. This must be performed carefully to protect your low back. This exercise mainly develops the group of paraspinal erectors of the spine (iliocostales, longisslmus thoracis, spinalis thoracis, splenius, and semispinals capitis) and quadratus lumborum and, to a lesser degree, the gluteus maximus and the hamstrings except for the short head of the biceps femoris. Complete flexion of the torso develops the flexibility of the lumbosacral mass. Supporting the pelvis on the bench, so that the axis Is displaced to the back of the body, focuses the movement completely at the lumbosacral level but less intensely given the range of motion and the greater power of the lever arm. To increase the intensity, sustain the horizontal position of the torso at the end of the extension for a few seconds. Using an incline bench makes this exercise easier for beginners to execute.
With another disease process (e.g., radiculopathy) nor have suffered a recent (i.e., within 1 month) injection or needle electrode examination (i.e., electromyography). The needle electrode examination should generally be performed on only one side of the body (and this should be clearly labeled in the chart) and is used to help in the identification of a muscle meeting sampling criteria so that the homologous muscle in the contralateral extremity may be sampled. In general, the most frequently biopsied upper extremity muscles are the deltoid and biceps brachii, and the most frequently biopsied lower extremity muscles are one of the quadriceps (e.g., vastus lateralis) because the range of normal for these muscles is well-defined. Although the gastrocnemius is frequently cited as a useful muscle, it should be avoided because of its type 1 muscle fiber predominance, its greater susceptibility to random pathological changes, and its pennate nature. 7 The problem with pennate muscles...
Short head of the biceps femoris Peroneal motor studies recording over the extensor digitorum brevis and tibialis anterior muscles should be performed. A protocol for this neuropathy is outlined in Table 9. Needle examination of the short head of the biceps is crucial in identifying lesions at the fibular neck (should be normal) or more proximal causes (if abnormal).
Biceps femoris, short head Semitendinosus Biceps femoris, long head This exercise works the hamstring group and gastrocnemius and deeper, the popliteus muscle. In theory, during flexion, It is possible to target the semitendinosus and semimembranosus by internally rotating the feet, or to target the long and short heads of the biceps femoris by externally rotating the feet. But in practice, this proves to be difficult, and only emphasis on the hamstrings and the gastrocnemius can be easily achieved Biceps femoris, short head Biceps femoris, long head Biceps femoris, short head Biceps femoris, long head
Using electromyographic biofeedback, the stretch reflex of the human biceps brachii muscle was successfully conditioned to increase or decrease in amplitude, but also required considerable training, approximately 400 trials per session.153 Evidence for the effects of physical activity and training on the strength of spinal reflexes has also been found in active compared to sedentary people. The H-reflex and disynap-tic reciprocal inhibition responses were small in sedentary subjects, larger in moderately active subjects, and largest in very active ones.154 The reflexes were lowest, however, in professional ballerinas. The greater need for corticospinal input to the cord to stand en pointe and the sustained cocontractions involving the gastrocne-mius and soleus complex probably lead to a decrease in synaptic transmission at Ia synapses, reducing the reflex amplitude. Thus, activity-dependent plasticity in the spinal motor pools contributes to the long-term acquisition of motor skills....

The correct answer is C. The median nerve can potentially be entrapped at six different sites along its course through the arm. The ligament of Struthers refers to a fibrous band that may arise from the medial humerus and inserts on the medial epicondyle. The lacertus fibrosus arises from the biceps tendon and inserts on the forearm flexor muscles. The median nerve can also be compressed as it pierces the pronator teres muscle, and as it passes under the fibrous sublimis bridge of the flexor digitorum sublimis muscle. In addition, a branch of the median nerve, the AIN, can be compromised as it travels through the forearm. Isolated involvement of the AIN may occur in cases of brachial plexitis (Parsonage-Turner syndrome). Finally, the median nerve can be compressed at the wrist for a variety of reasons. Guyon's canal is a small anatomic tunnel through which the ulnar nerve passes through the wrist to innervate the hand and is not a site of median...
This exercise works the bulk of the back it focuses the effort on the latissimus dorsi, teres major, posterior deltoid, biceps brachii, and brachioradialis, and at the end of the movement, when the shoulder blades come together, the trapezius and rhomboids. This exercise mainly works the latissimus dorsi, teres major, and posterior deltoid, and, at the end of the contraction, the trapezius and rhomboids. The forearm flexors (biceps brachii, brachials, and brachioradialis) are also used.

Biomechanical studies have shown that the fibula receives between 6.4 and 16.7 of the load transmitted from the lower extremity. The relative decrease in load assumed by the fibula likely accounts for the rarity of this entity. The position of the foot and ankle when the foot is in contact with ground determines the force transmitted. With the foot in an inverted, plantar-flexed position, the load to the fibula is diminished. However, with the foot in an everted, dorsi-flexed position, increased force is transmitted to the fibula. Repeated forceful contraction of the soleus and biceps femoris while the fibula is loaded with the foot in forced dorsiflexion has been postulated as the mechanism that causes fatigue fractures of the proximal fibula 13-15 .
The sciatic nerve derives its supply from the L4-S2 nerve roots. The nerve arises from the lumbosacral plexus, and exits the pelvis through the greater sciatic foramen before traveling under the piriformis muscle. The nerve itself consists of two distinct trunks, the lateral trunk (peroneal) and medial trunk (tibial). Branches originating in the proximal thigh arise predominantly from the tibial division. The tibial division supplies the hamstring muscles, with the exception of the short head of the biceps femoris, which receives its supply from the peroneal division. All muscles below the knee receive innervation from the sciatic nerve through one of its two divisions (peroneal or tibial). Afferent sensory input from the leg also travels in the sciatic nerve, except for that region supplied by the saphenous nerve.
Biceps femoris Emphasizes the upper portion of the trapezius and the biceps brachii. This exercise contracts the latlssimus dorsl, teres major, posterior deltoid, and the forearm flexors (biceps brachli, brachialis, brachioradialls).

Striated muscles are usually attached to tough connective tissue called tendons, which are attached to bones. Most muscles are in opposing pairs, with one of the pair contracting while the other relaxes. For instance, if you reach out toward something, the triceps muscle on the back of your upper arm contracts. If you then lift your hand to touch your shoulder, the biceps muscle on the front of your upper arm contracts, while the triceps relaxes. Both muscles are attached by tendons to bones in the forearm, and the bones' movements are controlled by those muscles.
This exercise develops the bulk of the back. It mainly works the upper and central fibers of the latissimus dorsi.The middle and lower portions of the trapezius, the rhomboids, the biceps brachii, the brachialis, and, to a lesser extent, the pectorals also contract. hial tuberosity ' Biceps feme
