would be a significant, moderate correlation between hip abduction strength and hip adduction excursion, which was supported by our results. While we cannot say definitively without electromyography (EMG) measurements, the gluteus medius was likely recruited during the hip abduction strength test. The

availability for competition. 4 Recent research and technological advances have increased the number of tools available to assess constructs of fitness and fatigue. These tools include submaximal heart rate tests, 5 countermovement jumps (CMJs), 6 lower limb muscular strength tests, 7 and perceptual

moderate to vigorous physical activity and had lower daily step counts, which are variables that have a direct effect on cardiovascular health. Almeida et al 2 evaluated the cardiovascular system via VO 2 max and ventilatory thresholds, as well as a knee function questionnaire, isokinetic strength test

lateralis (VL), and rectus femoris (RF) muscles during the isometric strength test, and measured each muscle activity in 3 different ankle positions. The muscle activity recordings were obtained by bipolar circular surface electrodes (Ag/Cl; 0.8 cm diameter) placed on each muscle at a fixed interelectrode

Following the baseline tests, one of the intervention protocols was performed: Static stretching: the SS protocol consisted of

Although quadriceps strength testing is important in these individuals, results from this study cannot be fully extrapolated to individuals with knee pathology

Strength testing was carried out in all patients the day before surgery (time 0), and at 60 (time 1) and 90 (time 2) days after surgery. Each patient warmed up on an exercise bicycle for 5 minutes at a low resistance before performing the strength test. All participants were tested for MVIC of the knee
