The purpose of this study is to assess how various exercises generate muscle activity in the hip abductor and hip flexor muscles. We are recruiting healthy subjects above the age of 18 to participate in this study. Participants will complete a demographic questionnaire and will be asked to perform 12 exercises, three times while muscle activity is recorded. These exercises include: bridge, mountain climber, rope/elastic band clam flexors, TRX lateral balance lunge with rotation, TRX single leg hinge with rotation, TRX rear foot elevated foot lunge, lateral band walk, side-lying wall, single-leg forward reach, skater hop, side plank leg raise, and hip drops. Participants will be fitted with surface electromyographic (EMG) equipment to measure their muscle activity. Their body fat and lean mass will be measured using a dual energy x-ray absorptiometer (iDXA) scan. This information will be useful for developing exercise routines to prevent falls in older adults.
