New Resources: Quadriceps vs. Hamstrings Ratio, and Electromyography Measurement with MShorts

We have added new articles today to our Sports: Resources, so log in to read them. Full titles below:

  • Monitoring Quadriceps vs. Hamstrings Ratio and Muscle Relaxation Level with Mbody, second article in series by Pekka Tolvanen

  • Bachelor’s Thesis: Electromyography measurement with Myontec’s MShorts 3, by Melina Meuschke

The second article, the thesis by Melina Meuschke, will be added to our public List of Research soon, but you can read it right away from the Sports: Resources page where you can also log in or register.

We are also working on other new content and web page updates. Stay tuned!

Clip from: Monitoring Quadriceps vs. Hamstrings Ratio and Muscle Relaxation Level with Mbody

In the previous article, How Myontec's Mbody Monitors Muscle Asymmetries

for Injury Prevention and in Rehabilitation, we discussed the theory behind

Problem detection traffic light system and what information can be

brought up with it. This time we wanted to discuss more about how this

feature can be implemented in real-life training and what benefits does it

bring to the user. This article focuses on Running and Cycling.

Q/H ratio in running

Q/H activation ratio decreases during running speed meaning that when running

intensity increases from low speed jogging to maximal sprinting, relatively more and

more work comes from hamstring muscles (Camic et al. 2015).

Q/H ratio in cycling

During cycling the Q/H ratio is closer to 50/50 % or quadriceps

typically dominate hamstrings with few percentages.
