Muscle Grip Strength Lab Report
Introduction: Skeletal muscle is a form of striated muscle tissue existing under the voluntary control of the somatic nervous system (Medscape 1). Skeletal muscle is part of the three big muscle types, it is connected to bones by tendons (Medscape 1). Muscle grip strength is significant to an individual because it helps the person know the ability of muscle power and force that they have in their hands. This will help notify the individual of what activities they can do or withstand. Provided each participant will be able to determine their grip strength in a seated and standing position, while being able to compare and contrast their results with the …show more content…
Which had the least? Explain. The greatest influenced on muscle grip strength of most individuals tested was the factor of exercise because the participants with in their demographic showed a higher grip strength then those who do not exercise. The least influence would have to be height because the two tallest participant had completely opposite results; one having an above average grip strength and the other having below average grip strength.
What significant factors other then gender,age,height,weight,handedness, and exercise status influence muscle grip strength? The other significant factors other then gender,age,height,handedness, and exercise that may influence the grip strength is if an individual has just done an activity using their arms and has strain the muscle. Also, if the individual has been recovering from an injury they will not have a high grip strength reading. Then there is the instance if are physically tired you will not be able to construct a high grip strength.
How does position (seated or standing) affect muscle grip
