Strength Training and the Efficacy of Electromyography (EMG)

This article will discuss kinesiological EMG only as its function relates to training regimes, voluntary neuromuscular activation, and functional movements.

Electromyography (EMG) is a scientific method of testing muscle activity. It is well regarded, some say, in the non-scientific community because of the simplicity of a stronger reading means stronger muscles. However, it is neither popular or as well-studied as it could be so, the question remains as to its effectiveness.
 
Considering EMG is not a popular choice, the following questions may come to mind:
