This book sets standards for testing athletes before they participate in sport and enlarges the scope of the traditional preparticipation fitness examination by: introducing a method of characterizing sports to show the differences in muscular demands; demonstrating testing procedures that show musculoskeletal deficiencies; and demonstrating how the individualized fitness profile can be used as a starting point for conditioning. The book describes sport-specific tests for 11 sports, which should enable team physicians and athletic trainers to be thorough and consistent in testing all relevant factors, regardless of the sport.
