Optimizing exercise outcomes: the efficacy of resistance training using conventional vs. novel movement arcs.

Abstract:

The purpose of this study was to examine the effect of using multidirectional movement arcs in a resistance training program for the shoulder. It was hypothesized that multidirectional exercises performed against resistance would result in a greater positive adaptation of the muscle tissue than conventional movement patterns commonly used in strength training. Fourteen female athletes were initially assessed using a 1x repetition maximum (1xRM) test for shoulder flexion and shoulder abduction...
