The cross-effect between musculatures having symmetry of muscular electrical activation and chewing side preference, in other words, of the right chewing preference with the greater myoelectric potential of the left sternocleidomastoid and right anterior tibial; left chewing preference with greater myoelectric potential of the right sternocleidomastoid and left anterior tibial, possibly existed due to the possibility of muscle compensation for trying to reestablish the postural muscle balance.
Therefore, the purpose of this study was to investigate the influence of a fixed rest interval of 2 min on volume load, upper body myoelectric activity, range of motion, and blood lactate after multiple sets during the bench press exercise.
