Such shoulder flexor moments reinforced the key role played by the pectoralis major and anterior deltoid
muscles during SPTs as previously documented .
You can then intensify the stimulus to the same areas with a double-joint movement that uses auxiliary muscles - in this case, the triceps and anterior deltoids
- to further fatigue the already spent target area.
The primary muscles mentioned above: Gluteus maximus, quadriceps, calves, anterior deltoids
, and the erector spinae are the key muscles for strengthening to maximize the drive phase for acceleration.
For example, press ups work the pectorals of the chest, anterior deltoids
of the shoulder and the triceps on the back of the arm.
As the patient progressively regained power and control, exercises for anterior deltoids
were added, but the right side showed slight weakness for which electrical stimulation of the anterior deltoids
was administered for 1 week after which the patient was discharged home.
