. To optimize the training process and control injury risk, practitioners must be able to utilize valid and reliable methods to monitor individual and team-training loads, 2 because without precise quantification of training load, it is not possible to identify the response to training. 3 Training

The 1-repetition maximum (1RM) is defined as the maximum load that can be lifted just once in a given exercise. 1 The 1RM is one of the variables most commonly reported to assess the efficacy of various training and rehabilitation interventions as it is considered a valid indicator of maximal

There are several specialized standalone ergometers for laboratory use and its high level of reliability and validity have been confirmed (Lode, 1 Ergoline, 2 Monark, 2

displacement plethysmography has shown high reliability and validity for evaluating body composition in many populations, and it has been used frequently as a criterion measure for field techniques in the past two decades, as other methods such as hydrodensitometry and dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry are not

The purposes of this tutorial are threefold: (a) to clarify the meaning of measurement validity, (b) to provide appropriate validation procedures for use by researchers in adapted physical activity, and (c) to raise the awareness of the limitations of the traditional views on measurement validity. Several validation procedures are described with specific examples from adapted physical activity research based on traditional approaches of providing validity evidence. Conceptual and empirical limitations of the traditional validity framework are discussed. We recommend that several categories of validity evidence should be reported in research studies. We encourage practicing the unified concept of measurement validity (Messick, 1993, 1995) in adapted physical activity research and practice.
