Numerous authors agree return-to-sport training protocols and testing criteria incorporating quantitative measures, including functional performance testing, should be used to determine lower-extremity function postinjury. 12 , 26 – 28 However, reports on the application and outcomes of these protocols

The neurocognitive hops incorporate neurocognitive demand overlaid on the traditional functional performance testing to quantify both physical and cognitive/visual-motor capabilities. Neurocognitive testing has typically only captured deficits in reaction time, processing speed

Hence, as exercise economy and the lactate threshold become increasingly important with prolonged competition duration, 29 these adaptations may be of major importance for

Although this may limit the inferences from this specific body of work, it does appropriately reflect the myriad of

This is likely due to differences in methodology, particularly the use of varying forms of ketone supplements and the manipulation of carbohydrate availability before and during the performance test. In addition, the previously mentioned studies were unlikely to be
