Rehab Trainer – Medial Tubing Pull for Grumpy Quads GQ13
I hope I didn’t confuse you last week with the ball-squeeze debate… let me say clearly that I believe it is better for activating VMO to have the tubing AROUND THE OUTSIDE of the knees.
This actually increases the activation of the VMO, which shows itself in increased EMG readings (see todays video from 2011 in Iceland where we were trialling different techniques with Physio friends Stefan and Einar). Up to 25% increase in VMO activation happened simply with applying tubing in a medial direction.
