[Purpose] The purpose of this research was to examine differences in muscle activity between the resting forearm position (RFP) and the straight forearm position (SFP) during upper arm strengthening exercises. [Participants and Methods] In total, 35 healthy college students were randomly sampled (18 males and 17 females). Surface electromyography data were collected from the medial and lateral sides of the biceps and triceps brachii muscles. [Results] The medial muscles showed greater activity during SFP versus RFP, but no difference in overall activation was found between the two positions. [Conclusion] Carrying angle less affected to biceps and triceps brachii muscles activation during upper arm strengthening exercises.
