Abstract
PURPOSE
The purpose of this study was to analyze the effects of Kinesio taping by comparing the repetition frequency, the EMG responses of iEMG and MPF with or without application of Kinesio taping during arm curl 10-RM.
METHODS
Subjects were consisted of 10 college men. The subjects performed non-taping 10-RM without Kinesio taping, or Taping 10-RM, and Taping Max-RM of 10-RM with Kinesio taping. The Kinesio taping were applied by the methods reported by KTAI (2011). Paired t-test and repeated ANOVA were used.
RESULTS
The repetition frequency of Taping Max-RM of 10-RM was increased about 25.2% than that of Non-taping 10-RM(p<.01). There were significant difference in iEMG among Non-taping 10-RM, Taping 10-RM, and Taping Max-RM of 10-RM both biceps brachii(p<.05) and pectorialis major(p<.01), and iEMG of Taping 10-RM was lower than iEMG of the others(p<.05). iEMG of Taping 10-RM both biceps brachii and pectorialis major was lower that of Non-taping 10-RM even the same physics work. There were no significant difference between iEMG of Non-taping 10-RM and iEMG of Taping Max-RM of 10-RM even repetition frequency after the application of taping were increased 25.2%. In case of MPF, there was no significant difference among Non-taping 10-RM, Taping 10-RM, and Taping Max-RM of 10-RM both biceps brachii and pectorialis major. MPF related with muscle fatigue factor showed no significant difference.
CONCLUSIONS
The repetition frequency of arm curl was increased about 25.2% after the application of Kinesio taping. Kinesio taping reduced iEMG of muscle during 10-RM. There was no significant difference in iEMG even at maximum repetition. However, MPF was not effected by application of taping.
