In Vivo Assessment of the Effect of Bench Press Exercise on Glenohumeral Cartilage Deformation

The goal of this project is to investigate the impact of high-load exercise, like the bench press with a large amount of weight as opposed to an exercise like the push-up, on the shoulder joint cartilage , tissue on the ends of our bones that cushion and protect them from damage, as well as assess how well qualitative assessments of personal pre- and post-exercise pain coordinate with cartilage structure. We predict that there will be a significant difference in pre- and post-exercise cartilage thickness.
