Masseter Activation Influence on Core Endurance Exercise
The purpose of this research study is to investigate the degree to which teeth clenching influences performance in the core endurance exercise, the plank, on different surfaces. This study will analyze the connections between oral health and athletic abilities through the use of surface electromyography (EMG). We expect that you will be in this research study for one session that will last approximately 45 minutes to 1 hour.
