. However, the implementation of performance tests for assessing the physical performance level in large epidemiological studies can be very expensive and time consuming. On the other hand, estimating LTPA by validated tools will also provide insight regarding physical performance. Although doubly labeled

pretesting and posttesting at 1380 m (Thredbo, NSW, Australia, Figure  1 ). An incremental treadmill test to exhaustion was performed the day prior to a 5 × 2-km on-road performance test. Pretesting and posttesting procedures for the 2 tests were completed across 3 testing days, with a mixture of athletes

associated with 60-minute TT performance (FTP) would be useful in practical and research settings. As the 20-minute TT is still a demanding performance test, we also sought to examine the association between the 4-minute TT and 60-minute TT. We chose a 4-minute TT, because it closely approximates the time

The CAI group reported more perceived instability in their involved limb during 4 of the 5 functional performance tests, although it did not affect their performance. 12 Although FAI is a term used to categorize some with a history of ankle sprain, it is the presence of self-reported perceived

can be evaluated both objectively and subjectively; functional performance tests (FPTs) are objective parts of athletic therapy and have been used to identify athletic ability and performance decrements as well as predict potential injury risk by using running, hopping, and leaping actions similar to

Key Points ▸ A recent trend in sports medicine research is to identify athletes at risk for injury based on preseason performance profiles. ▸ One functional performance test, the Y Balance Test–Lower Quarter, has shown promise as a preseason screening tool. ▸ The ability of the Y Balance Test

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

In mobility performance, key determinants are the ability to accelerate, sprint, brake, or rotate. 1 – 3 de Witte et al 4 recently developed and validated a wheelchair mobility performance test

IMTP assessments, and a limited selection of power-related performance tests, have been reported in adolescent players. 5 A small relationship ( r  = .29) was reported between dominant:nondominant IMTP normalized peak force ratio and countermovement jump (CMJ) height. In contrast, a very large
