Abstract

This study deals with an electromyographic method as a proper objectificational agent used to obtain and interpret data while outdoor activities of cyclic nature. The fundamental principle of this method is scanning of an electric responses of a muscle tissue through electrodes. These electrodes, stuck on a skin, scan potentials amount of a muscle fibers and thus provide a global information about the muscle function or at least its part. On one hand, this method seems to be essential for this type of motion, nevertheless on the other hand, it is necessary to follow certain fundamentals and principles which the study summarize. It is not also simple to interpret and draw any conclusions from number of data obtained by measuring. Our article advert to the above-mentioned issue either and it digestedly indicates possibilities of data evaluation within the frame of intraindividual and interindividual analysis and findings relating to a cyclic motions received while pursuit of an outdoor activity.
