The present study is unique with regard to its experimental design in which muscular activity of forearm muscles have been investigated in relation to vibration transmission to the bicycle in the field settings.
Considering the limited knowledge regarding muscular activity in the upper extremity in response to vibration exposed on a bicycle, this study aimed to investigate forearm muscle activity depending on the surface irregularities and the type of the bicycle.
From the reviewed literature, it was hypothesized that surface induced loads will result when vibration is transmitted to hand and arm of the bicycle rider and in parallel with the level of vibration exposure forearm muscle activity will be affected.
In this study, the origins of six deep forearm muscles were quantified: the extensor indicis (EI), extensor pollicis longus (EPL), extensor pollicis brevis (EPB), and abductor pollicis longus (APL) on the dorsal side (Fig.
Then, the interosseous ligament was digitized, followed by the origins of the deep forearm muscles, which were divided into separate regions of origin on the interosseous ligament and bone.
In the present study, the origin areas of the deep forearm muscles were quantified.

Therefore, a strength-matched gender comparison would determine if any gender difference found in the fatigability of the forearm muscles was due to differences in absolute strength.
Early fatigue of the forearm muscles was assessed after 2 min of intermittent handgrip exercise.
From his thirty-seven years of working with all kinds of athletes, Prichard knew that overuse of the forearms (from gripping heavy weights, for instance) creates microfibers, or scar tissue in the forearm muscles.
Then, when they have to lightly grip their putters, their forearm muscles spasm and they yip their putts.
